October 15th 2014 – Following the public disclosure of the existence of the Poodle security bug yesterday, Icomera wishes to reassure our customers that action has been taken to investigate and eliminate any vulnerabilities in our systems that third parties may have looked to exploit.

The Poodle (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) security bug is a vulnerability in the design of SSL version 3.0 – an 18-year old encryption standard. It is believed that, once exploited, Poodle would have allowed a third party to decrypt some data from secure connections.

The discovery of Poodle immediately prompted Icomera to act, disabling the use of SSL version 3.0. Icomera’s customers are not required to take any additional action themselves at this stage.

Icomera remains committed to protecting our customers’ data and in the rare cases where major online security issues do arise, please be assured that our ever-vigilant team will be on hand to combat these swiftly and decisively.

Customers with any outstanding questions or concerns should contact their Icomera account manager.
