Regarding Auth.net updation

below is a copy of an e-mail from authorize.net regarding some technical updates, so you can determine if there is anything that needs to be done on this.currently i am using payment form component in joomla and there auth.net plugin were used...so please assist me what to do next and now..

 | Authorize.Net Technical Updates
 | Your Payment Gateway ID: 1281424
 Dear Authorize.Net Merchant:  | Over the next few months, we are making several updates to our systems that you need to be aware of. They are all technical in nature and may require the assistance of your web developer or shopping cart/payment solution provider.
 
 Please read this email carefully, and if you need to find a web developer to help you, please check out our Certified Developer Directory at www.authorize.net/cdd.
| Akamai SureRoute Reminder  | As we get further into 2016, we want to remind you of ourpreviously announced Akamai SureRoute implementation plan and timelines. Using Akamai's technology will help safeguard against interruptions caused by issues beyond our direct control, such as Internet congestion, fiber cable cuts and other similar issues.

If you have not already, please review the announcement and the Akamai FAQs to determine what action you should take for your particular solution. If your solution uses a firewall, please pay particular attention to this section of the FAQs to make sure you avoid any disruptions to your transaction processing.
| Transaction and Batch ID Reminder  | In the coming weeks, due to system updates, it will be possible to receive Authorize.Net IDs (Transaction ID, Batch ID, etc.) that are not in sequential order.

For example, currently, if you receive a Transaction ID of "1000," you could expect that the next Transaction ID would not be less than 1000. However, after the updates, it will be possible to receive a Transaction ID less than the one previously received.

If your system has any functionality that expects Authorize.Net-generated IDs to be sequential, please update it immediately so that you will not see any disruptions.

Additionally, please make sure that your solution does not restrict any Authorize.Net ID field to 10 characters. If you are required to define a character limit when storing any of our IDs, the limit should be no less than 20 characters.
 | RC4 Cipher Disablement  | In an effort to ensure that all of your server-to-server communications with the Authorize.Net platform (both transactional and otherwise) maintain the highest levels of security, we will be disabling the RC4 cipher suite during the first half of 2016. A follow-up notification will be sent out once specific dates for the disablement are ready for the sandbox and production environments.

For now, if you have a solution that relies on RC4 to communicate with our servers, please update it to a current, high-security cipher as soon as possible. Please review our API best practices blog post for more information. 
 
Sincerely,
Authorize.Net

Re: Regarding Auth.net updation

Hello @Joomla

 

I would recommend contacting the developer of your Joomla plugin to ask these questions.
