Earlier Authorize.net using MD5 as a encryption algorithm. Now they are upgrading and going with Signature Key (SHA-512) encryption.

As, all existing Magento using earlier encryption, So all Magento need to Patch (Replace some files) to correctly working of Authorize.net as a payment method.

If you not using Authorize.net as payment method (also planning not to be use in future): Don't do anything just ignore this message

If you are using it, you need to apply patch as per official given in the documentation.
