Is there any truth to the rumors circulating about the alleged death of Max Milbers, one of the key figures behind Virtuemart?

Dear guys,

2Checkout was send mass emails to users, that they are going to Transition to a New Encryption Algorithm SHA3 and SHA256 on May 15, 2024.

Information of 2checkout:
"After May 15, 2024, MD5 will no longer be supported, and failure to perform the updates on your side could lead to disruptions in your checkout flows and other integrations."  (Bellow, I will attach a screenshot of their email. )

They provided different shopping cart plugins instruction like: Drupal, Magento, OpenCart, PrestaShop and so on, but there are not information about Virtuemart (TCO) plugin instruction. They updated most of shopping cart plugins about 2 weeks ago, but they not updated Virtuemart [2chackout plugin].

I'm now using TCO Plugin in my two website:
1th website based on Joomla version: 2.5.27 and VM version: 2.0.20b
2th website based on Joomla version: 3.9.24 and VM version: 3.6.10 10211

My Question:
Will this update affect to the TCO Plugin to accept payments ? If yes, are there any way or maybe someone can help to solve this problem ? I think that the solution to this problem will be useful to many TCO Plugin users to avoid any errors after 15th May, 2024.

Bellow I will attach some important links and information, maybe this help you to find some solition.

Here 2checkout official plugin for virtuemart on GitHub:

Here the screenshot of their email (some confidential information is hidden):

Thanks everyone in advance!

What do you mean with disable? If you disable a customfield, it needs an entry todo so. Or do you mean, that you remove it?

Search for the file en-GB.com_virtuemart.sef.ini in components\com_virtuemart\language\en-GB

copy this file to your language directory and rename the en-GB to your language tag. Then just translate the file and please share it :-)
General Questions / hide spam

Spammers send spam from the machine only to this place -  "General Questions".

I suggest changing the id number 114 of the category for the "General Questions" forum, and leaving this id number 114 under the name of the "spam" category and hiding this forum whith this ID.

I have a request for a change in the code. When you override a custom field in the child product it will make a new custom field record in the database. But when you disable that override, it also removes this record from the database. The thing is that it also removes the instance from the order. So it basically changes the order values and it missed the custom field values.

Is it possible when you change this override it checks the orders and sets the values to the parent custom id if its available, so it does not remove these values from the order?
