Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet. SSL 3.0 was replaced by TLS 1999 in 1.0 and is considered obsolete, but is often still supported by browsers and web servers for reasons of compatibility. However, attackers can use the vulnerability to obtain confidential data or manipulate data during transmission.

By the way, POODLE is short for Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption.

For these reasons, the SSL encryption protocol will be disabled by most banks in week 43 2014.
