What does SUPEE-8167 do?
SUPEE-8167 is the new patch used for PayPal Instant Payment Notification (IPN) changes. You need to either upgrade your Magento version to 188.8.131.52 or install SUPEE-8167 before 30, June 2017 to avoid service disruptions.
After 30 June, 2017, PayPal IPN will no longer allow you to use HTTP protocol to post messages back to PayPal for payment verification. Till date most of the plugin/extensions were using either HTTP or HTTPS technique for getting payment verification response. From now onward it will become more secure as PayPal won’t allow to get response back by HTTP protocol. So all merchants using PayPal IPN must upgrade to Magento community edition 184.108.40.206 or apply SUPEE-8167 patch.
