Oct. 15, 2014 - MailRoute users protected against POODLE

All MailRoute services are patched and protected, and we are not susceptible to this vulnerability.

The recently discovered POODLE vulnerability is an exposed weakness in the design of SSL version 3.0. 

This vulnerability allows the plaintext of secure connections to be calculated by a network attacker.

"SSL 3.0 is nearly 18 years old, but support for it remains widespread. Most importantly, nearly all browsers support it and, in order to work around bugs in HTTPS servers, browsers will retry failed connections with older protocol versions, including SSL 3.0. Because a network attacker can cause connection failures, they can trigger the use of SSL 3.0 and then exploit this issue."  Google
