Magento Security Patch SUPEE-8788 is a remote code execution flaw which allows attackers to run arbitrary code on the store and take complete control. This is a similar flaw to the infamous ShopLift bug that has caused problems globally since being discovered in April 2015 Magento security update.
To check if your Magento store is at risk we recommend you run a scan on magereport.com that will identify if the patch has been applied correctly.
This is another reminder of the importance of following strong security practices. Please review and follow the security best practices posted on the Magento Security Center
