The email is from PayPal, and should have included a link to the microsite www.paypal-notice.com , which has full details
Here is a PayPal article that talks about content being put there: https://www.paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/our-tech-support-content-has-moved!-ts2171
I too, received a message from (supposedly) paypal in reference to "TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 Upgrade - Complete by June 2018
- Update Needed: Yes
...however, my security system Avira blocks this site as malware/phishing. Also, on my paypal account, I have no notification of any such upgrade.
I find no explanation in my account settings as to what this upgrade is or what it is for. Haven't a clue.
Can anyone advise if this is indeed a malware/phishing fake email from Paypal or not?
I got this email from PP 2X's and I'm confused about what I'm supposed to do. Everytime I go to the site it suggests, I am more confused about what to do?
Our records indicate that you still need to make critical security upgrades to your systems. If you see a “YES” next to a security change, your integration must be updated to accept these new security measures as soon as possible.
Change Change Required?
|Merchant API Certificate Credential Upgrade||No|
|TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 Upgrade||No|
|IPN Verification Postback to HTTPS||Yes|
|Discontinue Use of GET Method of Classic NVP/SOAP||No|
We don't need or use IPN and I have turned it off via profile > profile & settings > my selling tools > Instant payment notifications > update > choose IPN settings but we STILL get the daily email message with the subject "PayPal Instant Payment Notification Warning" . We don't use IPN and we never have. How the heck do I put an end to these notifications.
Another issues that is weird is that it's looking for a path that's not been created. Why would the system look for this all of a sudden?
The email warning started 4 or 5 days ago.
It's very strange.
Here's the path.
Why would PP look for this specifc IPN script that we never created in the first place?
Have I missed something? Why won't PP stop bugging me?
Well, I can not check the information, as everytime I receive the email, Avast blocks it as a dangerous site. This is the third email I receive from them. I pay attention to it, because I am addressed by name and not like "Dear User" or anything like that which scammers do.
