Hello, someoneXgr,


The SSL 3.0 vulnerability is something that browsers have to cover for the home-user. For example, Firefox is going to disable it completely ("SSLv3 will be disabled by default in Firefox 34, which will be released on Nov 25."): https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2014/10/1...end-of-ssl-3-0/

Kaspersky continues to protect from this sort of attack the same way as before. The SSL vulnerability can only be exploited if your computer is already compromised by a man-in-the-middle attack. Our product would intercept the man-in-the-middle attack, therefore the SSL vulnerability would be irrelevant anyways.


The results of PoodleTest.com with enabled "Scan encrypted connections" may seem contradictory because our product serves as man-in-the-middle itself at the moment when initial connection to the site takes place.


To put it in a nutshell — our product will react if the real attack happens.
