“You do not need to install the SUPEE-7405 v 1.0 patch if you are running Magento Enterprise Edition, Magento Community Edition, or have previously installed the SUPEE-7405 v 1.0 patch on an earlier version of Magento Community Edition.”

Magento are advising users to ensure all previous patches are installed and use this as an opportunity to do a security assessment of your systems and ensure you’re in-line with security best practices.
