Godaddy Hosting Configuration Change Affects Paypal Payments
I never never never never recommend anyone host a zen cart website on a godaddy.com server. (Other types of websites are fine I am sure - just too many problems with the zen cart program). Today an announcement was made on the zen cart forum that explains that a new upgrade to godaddy's hosting configuration now makes paypal not work on zen cart websites hosted on their servers. The fix for this issue can be found here: http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?p=612520#post612520

Zen Cart SQL Injection Risk
The Zen Cart development team has just posted a bug fix for all current versions of zen cart that have their magic_quote_gpc turned off in their server/site's PHP settings. To check and see if your magic_quote_gpc is turned off, log into your admin, go to Tools then to Server / Version Info and do a search to find magic_quote_gpc which is under PHP CORE. All websites on my dedicated server are fine, because magic_quote_gpc is turned on globally on the server. To find out more about the fix for the bug, please visit the Zen Cart Forum's Announcement Area.

ALTER TABLE authorizenet CHANGE COLUMN transaction_id transaction_id varchar(20) NOT NULL default '';
