WebShopApps Extensions and SUPEE-6788

Posted by: Josh Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Magento are releasing a new security patch tomorrow along with Magento 1.9.2.2CE and 1.14.2.2EE. The updates address a number of important security flaws such as bypassing the admin URL and SQL injection.

WebShopApps have assessed the impact of the patch on all of our most popular extensions and so far, have found no issues. We pro-actively fixed many of the security flaws addressed in this patch over the course of the last year.

Once the patch is released we will be retesting our extensions with the patch in place and aim to provide any updates required within 72 hours of finding the issue.

If you’re using a very old version of some of our extensions, you may run into issues and need the latest version. Please contact us should that be the case, and we will offer you a discounted renewal rate.

UPDATE

After testing with the patch, we’ve discovered some minor issues with these extensions. You should contact us for a update which are available now.

Under the Hood of Robert Reedy

Posted by: Ashley Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Robert_headshotRobert Reedy is Project Coordinator at Creatuity, a web development firm that specializes in Magento, PHP and WordPress. With offices in Dallas and Europe, the company has been able to work with over 100 clients throughout the US and abroad. Creatuity is a Magento Silver Solutions Partner that provides top of the line Magento solutions to clients of all sizes and with customizable services, has been successful in a variety of industries.

Robert took time out of his busy day to explain what life is like as Project Coordinator at Creatuity. Within our interview, we got to know Robert in a personal and professional sense as he shared how he balances his work and personal life, his thoughts on the future of eCommerce and much more!

Can you describe what you really do at work?

I am a Project Coordinator. This means that I am a project manager, creative director, sales rep, psychiatrist, and friend/ally to all Creatuity clients. I work closely with our clients to make sure that their project requirements are completed on time and within budget. I have several clients that I have worked with for years, and have developed close business relationships with these clients.

If money was no object, what would you spend your days doing?

If money was no object, or rather I had unlimited financial funding, I would spend my days traveling around the world, making art, starting hippy communes, feeding the hungry, curing disease, and ending war.

In your spare time what do you get up to, and how do you balance this with your workload?

In my spare time I make abstract sound art, abstract paintings, concrete sculptures, and woodworking (turning wood bowls). I do this mostly in the evenings after work and on the weekends.

How do you see the future evolving for Magento and the eCommerce space in general?

I believe that the eCommerce space will continue to grow and expand, and I believe that Magento itself will become the dominant platform for most businesses.

What is usually your last thought before falling asleep?

My last thought before I fall asleep is usually related to gratitude for the day, and hopes for a better tomorrow.

Who is your role model, and why?

I look up to John Lennon and Yoko Ono. I have always admired how they promoted peace and understanding in their collaborations of music and visual art. Martin Luther King Jr. has always been a role model – no need for explanations there. Also, lately I have been reading and following Tim Ferriss a lot; I like many of his thoughts and recommendations and have been working to incorporate them into my business and personal life.

What motivates you?

Freedom.
