The Poodle SSLv3 vulnerability and its impact on Novell Open Enterprise Server.

  • 7015793
  • 20-Oct-2014
  • 11-Dec-2014

Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux

Situation

Unlike many other vulnerabilities this security issue is not within code but within a protocol.  Therefore, it is not about a particular OS that needs to be patched.  Resolving this vulnerability requires a review of an environment's ability to remove SSLv3 services and use TLS instead.  Both clients and servers need to be reviewed as to whether their applications and services still require SSLv3.
