Magento 1 is has passed the EOL mark so no new updates will be provided by Magento itself. You might look into OpenMage which is an opensource project to continue the support of Magento 1.

If I'm not mistaken, the issue you mentioned (Flash upload) is fixed in there.


Where is the uploader? Is it within an extension or core?

I could be mistaken but I'm almost certain this was resolved in SUPEE 8788 and 1.9.3 release

Core team switched to JS uploader for reason you outlined



APPSEC-666 - Cross-site scripting in Flash file uploader

If it's within an extension it's best you raise with the dev

  • Does this change will make image uploader works on Magento ?
