Authorize.Net sent out an email to all of its users entitled “Important POODLE Information for Your Authorize.Net Account,” in reference to disabling SSLv3 Accounts. The email read:
“…Authorize.Net itself is not vulnerable to POODLE, but we are making changes to our systems to assure that we are providing our merchants and their customers with the highest degree of security possible.
To the end, on November 4, 2014, we will be disabling the use of SSLv3 within our systems. This means that if your website or shopping cart solution uses SSLv3 to send transactions to Authorize.Net, you will no longer be able to process transactions. You will also no longer be able to access any secure Authorize.Net pages from IE6.
We expect that a minimal number of our merchants will be affected. However, because we do not control how your particular site or solution sends transactions to us, this change could potentially impact your transaction processing. Please immediately contact your web developer or shopping cart solution to see if you will need to make any changes to your site or solution before November 4th…”
