For users of the TourCMS tour operator ecommerce platform
As we have received a few queries through to the helpdesk on this, prompted by emails from payment gateways I thought I would post a quick update here on the forums.
What is POODLE?
A vulnerability was disclosed recently in in an old version of SSL (v3), the encryption technology used to create secure connections between websites. The bug has been named POODLE (short for "Padding Oracle On Downloaded Legacy") and could allow the plaintext of secure connections to be calculated by a network attacker.
In short it means "secure" connections that are using the old version of SSL may not be secure.
