Discover Card declined via virtual terminal

We have discovered a security issue related to Discover Card transactions processed via the virtual terminal.  This does not seem to occur with payment via our website.


With the CCV handling fraud filter enabled Discover cards are being declined.  Disable that and the transaction goes through.  Users report they are entering the correct CCV codes.  Is anyone else experiencing this?  Is there a fix or a workaround, other than our current method of turning the fraud protection off and on?
