  1. Hi John, Yes, SSL does provide security - but only between the client and the server. It does not ensure the data itself traversing the SSL is accurate. Hashing, encryption, etc.. protects the data itself from breaches and verifies the validity of said data. Is it overkill? Probably... and again personal preference. In my opinion, if the option to further validate my data is there, I'll take it. Notice they say "not as useful for AIM or CP merchants". If it was completely "not useful" then I imagine it would of been abandoned entirely.
  2. I use the MD5 code and I highly suggest everybody else use the new method with the sha512 hash. From a security perspective it is critical. Is security optional? Yes. However, why wouldn’t you take the extra five minutes to implement this for you and your customers security?
  3. I don't think any exist right now. I stumbled into this just today as I was searching for a solution to the same problem.....
  4. I always use the MD5 hash ... simply for added security. It is optional. However, as Wiljen and John stated above, this is not good news that AIM is now deprecated. I was not aware of that. We probably will survive for quite some time still... however, this will eventually bite us if we don't create a new OSC addon for the new authorize.net API
  5. Authorize.Net is phasing out the MD5 based transHash element in favor of the SHA-256 based transHashSHA2. The setting in the Merchant Interface which controls the MD5 Hash option will be removed by the end of January 2019, and the transHash element will stop returning values at a later date to be determined. Please contact and work with your web developer or solutions provider to verify if you are still utilizing MD5 based hash and if still needed to move to SHA-256 hash via Signature Key. Please refer your developer or solution provider to our Transaction Hash Upgrade Guide for more details and information on this change. **** I received the above in an email from authorize.net. Just curious if anyone is planning on updating the module to support this?

    UPS Down?

    I haven't noticed a change in speed since switching to XML. I think it boils down to personal preference. The XML module is nice in that it should be more accurate based on the fact that it takes L, W and H into account and ties directly into your own UPS account number and negotiated rates. Probably best practice to get both versions working so you can switch easily should this happen again. We lost some sales because of it

    UPS Down?

    I think I just have a super old UPS shipping module that finally bit the dust... probably due to the fact that UPS doesn't support older versions of TLS... I switched to UPS XML and that works. I'm sure there are others that may be using the old one... they'll figure it out soon enough

    UPS Down?

    Anyone else having problems with UPS being down? I can't reach which is hard coded in the UPS shipping module....

I went and looked and the "usu_cache" table is empty. Is this even used?
  10. Is this module compatible with OSC edge (bootstrap)? Is this also still supported?

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    I really like this search feature, except for 1 thing. It auto-selects the first item in the search results that appear below the search window. I'd rather not have any of them autoselected, so if the user just clicks "enter" it will automatically do an advanced_search rather than always picking the first item below the search box. Any idea how to change the code to do that?

    I found the problem. "Mod_Evasive" must be turned off in the apache settings. However, this is a bad thing, as mod_evasive helps to prevent DDOS attacks!

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    It is on a live site, so I disabled it until I can find out why I'm getting the 403 forbidden errors.

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    Thanks for the add-on! I have something odd happening, the search appears to work, I see a listing of the products being populated when I type. However, when I click on the item I want to visit, I get a HTTP Forbidden error returned. I assume it may be something in my .htaccess ? I have cross site scripting disabled maybe that is doing it? I'm really not sure what would cause the forbidden. The URL looks correct.
