Authorize.Net Direct Post MD5 Hash Deprecation and Update


Magento’s implementation of the Authorize.Net Direct Post payment method currently uses MD5 based hash for all M1 and M2 installations. As of mid March 2019, Authorize.Net will stop supporting MD5 based hash usage (announcement). This will result in Magento merchants not being able to process payments using Authorize.Net Direct Post. To avoid disruption and to continue processing payments, merchants need to apply a patch provided by Magento and add a Signature Key (SHA-512) in the Magento Admin configuration settings.
