    Browser Makers React To Google Warning On SSL 3.0  (Ref: POODLE)

    Peter M

      Mozilla, Microsoft and other browser makers are turning off support for a decades-old encryption protocol following an advisory from Google warning that the protocol is vulnerable to a dangerous man-in-the-middle attack that could expose passwords and session cookie data.

       

      A Google Chrome update will disable version 3.0 and Google will remove support for SSL 3.0 completely from its client products. Mozilla also released a security advisory, telling users that it plans to turn off SSLv3 in Firefox and will disable it by default in version 34 of Firefox due out next month.
