PayPal SSL Endpoint Upgrade to SHA-256

We are aware that many of our merchants received a message today from PayPal concerning service upgrades. 

PayPal is upgrading the certificate for www.paypal.com to SHA-256. This endpoint is also used by merchants using the Instant Payment Notification (IPN) product.

What do I need to do?

The good news is that you shouldn't need to do anything. Your CubeCart powered store should continue to work fine with your existing PayPal extension. For those who would like reassurance we have released new version of both the PayPal Standard and PayPal Pro & Express Checkout extension which has a new IPN test tool. 

You can obtain the latest version of each extension below:

Once installed please navigate to the extensions configuration screen where you will find a "Test Endpoint" tool as shown in the screenshot below.


If you have any questions or concerns please do submit a technical support ticket.

Critical Security Issue: Admin account hijack

A critical security vulnerability has been brought to our attention by Fernando Camara. If an administrator's email is known to a hacker it may be possible to take control of the account and have complete access to the store's control panel.

Affected Versions: 5.2.12 to 6.0.6 

To patch please download the following files and replace them over your existing ones. It is then recommended to login and change all administrator passwords.

CubeCart v6 Patch: classes/admin.class.php (GitHub commit: 2bee289)
CubeCart v5 Patch: classes/admin.class.php (GitHub commit: 353d39b)

CubeCart 5.2.17 and 6.0.7 will be released later today patching this vulnerability.

Many thanks to Fernando for reporting this issue in such a responsible manner. At CubeCart we take security as our number one priority. We apologise sincerely to anyone who has been victimised by this issue. The issue was first reported to us at 12:50pm on Sunday 6th September and patches have been released in less than 24 hours.

CubeCart 6.0.6 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of CubeCart version 6.0.6.

What's New?

What's Memcached?

Memcached (Mem-Cache-D) is a general-purpose distributed memory caching system. It is often used to speed up dynamic database-driven websites by caching data and objects in RAM to reduce the number of times an external data source (such as a database or API) must be read.

Our demo store uses Memcached but CubeCart also supports Memcache, APC, XCache and native "Files" cache. If any of these systems are available CubeCart will use them automatically. Please turn debug mode on in the "Advanced" tab of your stores settings to find out what cache engine CubeCart is currently using.
