Old ciphers are well known as totally insecure (generally speaking, even some "new" are insecure as well), so the POODLE description does nothing but shows one more attack vector. The protection against the POODLE is quite simple: 1. For servers: disable weak encryption (in assumption they are updated on a regular basis). 2. For users: update old software. Alas, fully disabling weak encryption (e.g. set security.tls.version.min == 3 in Firefox) isn't what we can demand, but that leaves the user personally responsible for any and all data leaks. >> It's out: TP detected... -- Alexey V.
