Description

As a security improvement against the POODLE attack, this update disables SSLv3 support in the CUPS web interface.

For legacy environments where SSLv3 support is still required, it can be re-enabled by adding "SSLOptions AllowSSL3" to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
