Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:48:05 +0200 From: Florian Weimer <fweimer@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE assignment for POODLE CVE-2014-3566 is currently assigned to an SSL 3.0 protocol vulnerability: “The SSL protocol 3.0, as used in OpenSSL through 1.0.1i and other products, uses nondeterministic CBC padding, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to obtain cleartext data via a padding-oracle attack, aka the "POODLE" issue.” What we seem to be lacking is a CVE assignment for the protocol downgrade “dance” implemented by some browsers, explicitly designed to negate the effect of the downgrade protection in the TLS protocol (the protocol upgrade to TLS 1.0 and beyond is arguably the “fix” for CVE-2014-3566 as it is described above). -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security
