Invalid IPN Process error

Recommended Posts

I've received two email in the last week. The subject says

 

"Paypal IPN Ivalid Process"

 

The body of the email says"

 

 

$HTTP_POST_VARS:

 

test=test

 

$HTTP_GET_VARS:

 

Can anyone tell me why I get this error, what it means, and how to fix it?

I'm using Paypal Website Payments Standard. These two emails are the first I've had since having this cart for close to 18 months.

 

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Those emails are triggered when someone tries to access the PayPal IPN file directly in the ext.... folder - looks like a test of some sort coming from someone who knows you have PayPal on your site (or could be a novice hacker trying to get at your IP login details).

 

You can trigger one of them emails yourself by following the test instructions in the module's readme file.
