What is the SSLv3 or POODLE exploit?

POODLE stands for Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption and is a vulnerability that exploits a design flaw in SSLv3 (SSL version 3) that was created in 1996 to secure or encrypt data transmitted from one computer or device to another. The flaw or exploit allows secured or encrypted data being transmitted between two computers or devices, to be decrypted by someone other than the two computers or devices that are transmitting the data.

In other words, the exploit can allow someone to view the secured information that is being sent and received between your computer and another website. For more information please click here.
