authorize.net advisory (for march 21, 2016) does not affect Theatre Manager

Subscribe to Syndicate
Venues using authorize.net may have received an 'important Security Notice' indicating that authorize.net processing network had a security problem during their upgrade on the evening of March 21,2016 between 4:13 PM and 11:49 PM Pacific time. In the advisory, authorize.net says they inadvertently sent back the full 'unmasked card number' during an authorization request. The advisory also says is is subject to their confidentiality agreement and cannot be distributed.

This does not affect Theatre Manager users

We know the first thing our venues will want to know is if they are at any risk. So we are posting the answer, in advance, that TM does not store the full response string from authorize.net - it only tracks the authorization code and CVV2 response code. From what we've read in the security advisory, you may disregard it completely.
