If you are using Secure Trading payment gateway with VPCart (V8), you would have received the notification e-mail from them recently:
Subject : FAO Technical contact: Re. Mandatory Security Updates
Security is our number one priority and we are constantly striving to ensure the best protection for you and your customers.
Industry standards dictate the use of TLS version 1.2. Older versions will no longer be accepted after January 31st 2018. In order to safegaurd your payment processing solution you must ensure all your payment software is up to date to support the latest TLSv1.2 protocol with high strength ciphers.
All modern software supports these protocols so if you have regular software updates you are unlikely to be affected.
If you are using older versions of software please see the following website for information on how to upgrade. All Secure Trading systems already support the latest protocols so you can upgrade immediately.
Please note that if your system does not support TLS 1.2 after this date you will not be able to process transactions until you update your application.
Please contact our support team on +44 (0)1248 672050 or [email protected] if you have any queries about the updates.
We at VPCart have reviewed our V8 Secure Trading payment gateway module for this TLS security update and we can confirm that this gateway is using HTTP Post method which will not be affected by this update.
Therefore, if you continue to get the notification e-mail from Secure Trading, you can ignore it.
For older VPCart versions (v7, v650 etc..) that still use older version of Secure Trading gateway, we would suggest you to upgrade to our very latest VPCart version and then only use the Secure Trading gateway that you can download from https://www.vpasp.com/sales/epdownload800.asp.
