SERVER-OTHER -- Snort has detected traffic exploiting vulnerabilities in a server in the network.

Alert Message

SERVER-OTHER SSLv3 POODLE CBC padding brute force attempt

Rule Explanation

The SSL protocol 3.0, as used in OpenSSL through 1.0.1i and other products, uses nondeterministic CBC padding, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to obtain cleartext data via a padding-oracle attack, aka the "POODLE" issue.

CVE-2014-3568
OpenSSL before 0.9.8zc, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0o, and 1.0.1 before 1.0.1j does not properly enforce the no-ssl3 build option, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via an SSL 3.0 handshake, related to s23_clnt.c and s23_srvr.c.
