I'm trying to apply the following 2/17/2022 Critical Security patches for Magento 2.4.3-p1 from Adobe Security Bulletin APSB22-12.

  • MDVA-43395
  • MDVA-43443

In accordance with Magento Documentation, I have:

  • Added the Quality Patch Tool with composer require magento/quality-patches
  • Tried to install the patches with the tool, but they weren't listed as available in its "patch status interface": ./vendor/bin/magento-patches status
  • Download and extracted the patches to [Magento root]/m2-hotfixes
  • Tried to apply the patches from that directory with: ./vendor/bin/ece-patches apply

This is when I receive an error:

Applying patch .../magento/m2-hotfixes/MDVA-43395_EE_2.4.3-p1_v1.patch failed. 
error: app/code/Magento/Email/Model/Template/Filter.php: No such file or directory

It appears like the patch (diff) file is trying to locate the magento modules in my local app/code rather than in the vendor/magento files.

Do I need to create a symlink or hard replace all the file references in the patch?

Any guidance or feedback would be greatly appreciated!

There should be patch files for composer setups available here:


You can install it like this:

patch -p1 < MDVA-43395_EE_2.4.3-p1_COMPOSER_v1.patch

See also https://support.magento.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028367731 (stating that you may have to use patch -p0 < ... instead)

  • I was able to use those *COMPOSER * patch files in the ./vendor/bin/ece-patches apply approach. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
