Description

On October 14, 2014, a vulnerability was publicly announced in the Secure Sockets Layer version 3 (SSLv3) protocol when using a block cipher in Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode. SSLv3 is a cryptographic protocol designed to provide communication security, which has been superseded by Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. By exploiting this vulnerability, an attacker could decrypt a subset of the encrypted communication.
