    How to install SUPEE-6788

    In most cases this patch can be applied safely. However, as always, we recommend to test extensively on a testing/staging environment. (Hypernode users can set-up a basic staging environment).

    Some parts of this patch are optional, because it breaks backward compatibility with many extensions. So Magento has made a switch in the back-end to enable this extra measure. The rest of the patch can be applied relatively safely. Take note of the following issues (that will only affect a small number of installs):

    Have a custom <code>customer/form/register.phtml</code> template? It will break if you don’t add a form_key.
    Do you use non-standard variables in CMS pages, static blocks or email templates? They need to be whitelisted.
    Do you run the Magento cron through HTTP are are you using Apache? There is a new access control on cron.php, so you should change the .htaccess to include your local IP, or (better yet) run the cron through commandline PHP.
