I realize that Magento is not yet ready for prime time, but as of yet, are there any major security issues people should know about? I have to convince my boss to upgrade to php5 in order to try it, but he’s concerned about how secure it is in it’s current state.
We are not aware of any security issues with Magento at the time. We follow very strict programming standards to insure that the application is secure. We are committed to resolve security issues if such do come up.
