Update manually added products with Feeds

Ubercart - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:16

I read somewhere that it is not possible to update manually added products via Feeds. Is that true?

We want to show on our product information page our own stock, and manufacturers stock as well. Our stock of course updates automatically when someone buys something, but we'd like to automatically update the manufacturers stock from .csv file.

We also have a shipping time -field and I would like it to automatically change to "Out of stock" if both our stock and manufacturers stock are 0 or less. Is that possible with out a module? - All the cables you need

Categories: 2D & 3D Animation Response to Heartbleed Security Incident

Drupal - Tue, 04/08/2014 - 22:36

You may have heard that a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library called Heartbleed or formally called CVE-2014-0160 has been disclosed and that it represents a potential security threat to a large number of websites. Using this vulnerability, malicious individuals could access sensitive information submitted by people actively visiting a website including usernames, passwords and credit card numbers. Users across the Internet should be especially aware of suspicious activity on their accounts.

We want to communicate a couple pieces of information about this news with regard to

Members of the Drupal Association staff, Drupal Security Team and Drupal Infrastructure Team have reviewed's potential exposure to the vulnerability.

As of now, we have no indication that was attacked using this vulnerabililty. That said, the nature of the vulnerability makes an attack difficult to detect and we prefer to be cautious.

We have taken steps to protect users of, including a forced password reset for users with administrative access or access to code repositories for projects. While we have only forced the password reset for some users, we recommend that all of our users change their passwords.

We have taken the following steps to protect account holders:

  • Installed new SSL certificates based on a new private key
  • Revoked the old SSL certificates
  • Replaced the private strings (drupal_private_key and drupal_hash_salt) which are used for a variety of security related purposes in all Drupal sites
  • Replaced the private key used by the “bakery” single-sign-on system on
  • Removed all active sessions
  • Verified the email addresses in use today match those in use a week ago
  • Required that all users with administrative or project repository access to reset their passwords

Also, we simply want to help create awareness about the vulnerability and encourage people to review their sites for exposure. For more information, please see

Feel free to comment on the post with any questions. Thank you!
