POODLE Update: SSLv3 Support Removed

Recently, a vulnerability in version 3 of the SSL encryption protocol was disclosed. This vulnerability, dubbed POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption), allows an attacker to read information encrypted with this version of the protocol in plaintext using a man-in-the-middle attack.

For us, the window for exposure was quite small. We acted quickly to secure our infrastructure by removing support for SSLv3. If as a result of this change you are unable to access your web properties, updating your browser to the latest version should do the trick.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact support at support@edikon.com. You can also read the official security advisory on the openssl.org website.
