If you are a BrightCloud customer and have concerns, or if you are using IE6, please contact our expert team at SPOC@Bright-Cloud.net or call us on 03707 704 548.

What is the POODLE threat?

POODLE exploits a design flaw in the old SSL v3 protocol which affects some old systems, such as Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6. Modern systems use an alternative (TLS) and are not affected. However older systems won’t work by default with TLS and as a result fail to connect via these protocols to websites where SSL v3 has been disabled.

The risk is greatest when using public Wi-Fi because the most likely way an attacker will exploit this vulnerability is via a Wi-Fi connection.
