All Verifone VX terminals must be updated by June 25, 2019 or merchants risk problems where the terminal is stuck in a reboot and cannot accept credit cards. Verifone posted an advisory on their support web site June 3. Hopefully owners will be notified by their acquirers before they have hard failure. The VX series is very popular so it could be problematic if many thousands of VX terminal owners try and download the update at the same time.
Action is required for all customers using VX (all VX) or e-Series Devices (limited to e315, e315m and e355) on any version of CommServer prior to 544 or 5441 who have not downloaded the recovery utility. This action is for both customers who have successfully recovered their devices from a reboot loop, those who may be in a reboot loop, and those that did not experience issues at all on or around May 25, 2019. Read the entire alert on the Verifone support web page here.
The advisory impacts all Verifone VX terminals, so per my search, that would include the VX 520, VX 680, VX 805, and VX 670. Are you in need of a new or replacement terminal?
