The POODLE Security Vulnerability (And How Formstack Has Addressed It)

There is yet another Security Vulnerability release among us; this one has been titled POODLE, and is essentially a vulnerability in particular versions of SSL (secure socket layer) protocol known as SSL 3.0.  Older versions of SSL may be compromised when accessing data that should be encrypted in transmission. Most browsers should not be using this version of SSL. However certain older browsers such as IE6 may still be using these versions.  More can be seen about POODLE and its effects on web security here (and also here).

What has been done?
Many Web and SAAS providers have opted to drop support for SSLv3 after the POODLE advisory was released.  Formstack has complied with this recommendation and as of October 15th, we have killed SSLv3 support for API access and the App.
