MIGS payment gateway security upgrade by Comm Bank Australia

Hi,

We are using the MIGS payment gateway on our site and have received a notice from our bank (Commonwealth Bank of Australia) that they have a security update. They are no longer supporting MD5 hash encryption and would like us to use SHA256 instead. They will stop accepting payments as of 30 November 2016. They have sent us a developers toolkit with sample code. Can you help with this?

Hi Allan,

Are you certain that the EE4 MIGS uses MD5 hash encryption?

Josh,

To tell you the truth I have no idea. Can I send on the info I have from the bank?

I can send a note over to the developer of the MIGS payment gateway and they’ll be able to look into whether anything needs to be updated.

Josh,

Where can I send the developer toolkit too? It has more information in it and sample code.

We sponsored the original development of the MIGS gateway. I was not aware of any MD5 hashing being involved.

Josh,
I have reviewed the code and can see nothing requiring MD5. I called the bank and it seems like the letter they sent us did not apply to us. Nothing to change. 🙂

Hi Allan,

The MD5 algorithms applies to the hosted or offsite version of MiGS.

The payment gateway for Event Espresso is on-site and does not use the MD5 algorithms.
