[New Release] Crucial Magento 2 checkout security features come with OneStepCheckout version 1.2.044

OneStepCheckout for Magento 2 new release v1-2-044

This update is particularly important because it brings you additional security features that prevent your store from carding attacks.

In addition, we solved popular requests around the back-end, front-end, and installation.

Magento 2 checkout Security feature

The most requested and troubling issue Magento 2 customers have been facing is carding attacks related to how REST endpoints can be abused in their online stores.

Here’s the announcement on the Magento Community Forum

As a result, to prevent such attacks, v1.2.044 of OneStepCheckout for Magento 2 adds a few control points by implementing optional ReCaptcha (Google Invisible reCaptcha v3) to REST endpoints.

You can now choose from the backend what REST endpoints need more restricted access control applied. Read our documentation.

Back-end feature

To make administrators’ lives easier, the new version of OneStepCheckout allows you to see the relation from registered user guest orders from the order view in the admin panel.

Easier Installation

To make OneStepCheckout’s installation process easier we refactored out the “dflydev/dot-access-data” dependency as customers were struggling to know if it was already there or not.

Front-end improvements

Improved address data validation when fields are auto-filled

There are cases when your frontend is auto-filled and all that’s left is to click is the “Place Order” button. In such cases depending on Magento configuration, Magento still expects some internal js to be triggered and objects filled. This is now adjusted.

Discount not applied

Another annoying issue reported is where discounts were not applied on some cart rule conditions. This issue is now solved, please note that it only affected only some rules but not all.

You can find previous versions’ changelogs here.
