Anyone know if this is a scam? I can't find anything about it on my actual PayPal GUI. There is nothing in the notifications window at the top right.

New payment security standards coming into effect on September 30, 2016

Dear Yosuke Konishi,

Security and safety are our top priorities. We’re in the process of implementing a series of security upgrades in 2016 - 2017. These upgrades ensure our security measures continue to be a model for best practice and incorporate industry standards. Most importantly, the upgrades will allow us to continue to provide the highest level of security available for our customers.
Due to industry standards, the move to SHA-256 for our endpoints needs to happen in 2016.
We started preparing for the full cutover by performing a series of critical tests on our endpoints that started in July of this year. The purpose for the testing was to ensure we have helped our merchants prepare for the full transition to SHA-256 which will take place after September 30, 2016.

As we are approaching the cutoff date of September 30, 2016, we are conducting one final outreach to our merchants to ensure that they are keeping this date top of mind while making sure to prioritize this upgrade.

The details on the required changes and how to implement them can be found on our 2016-2017 Merchant Security Roadmap Microsite. To review information on the move to SHA-256 select SSL Certificate Upgrade.

We encourage you to contact your web hosting company, e-commerce software provider, in-house web programmer, or system administrator for assistance with these changes, if needed.

If you have not made the necessary changes by the deadline dates, you won’t be unable to accept payments with PayPal until you do so. We encourage you to contact your web hosting company, e-commerce software provider, in-house web programmer, or system administrator for assistance with these changes.

If you have additional questions, please visit the 2016-2017 Merchant Security Roadmap Microsite, go to Contact Us at any www.paypal.com page, or Technical Support Portal to submit a ticket. Select “Security Changes (TLS/Certificate)” within the Product drop-down. If you have additional questions, you may contact us at 1-888-221-1161.

Thank you for your support of our commitment to maintain high security standards for all our global customers.

Sounds like bollocks but I'd give the real paypal a call just to check.

I'm quite sure it's a scam unfortunately I get messages like that on sort of a regular basis.
Don't click anything. Just log in to your PayPal and if it says nothing in the same vein after the log in then it was an attempted scam.

Forward it to spoof@paypal.com and they can let you know if it's real or not.

"you won't be unable to" should tell you it's a scam/fake.

Part of my day job involves telling people that things like this are a scam. Call Paypal's customer service line (not the one given in the email, obviously), they should be able to tell you if it's real or not.
