Description of the vulnerability

The VIGILANCE-VUL-15485 (POODLE) vulnerability originates from an incorrect management of SSLv3 padding.

The F5 BIG-IP product can be configured to "terminate" SSL/TLS sessions. However, even when TLS is used, this BIG-IP feature uses the SSLv3 function to manage the padding. TLS sessions are thus also vulnerable to POODLE.

The same vulnerability also impacts Check Point, Cisco, IBM and Fortinet products.

An attacker, located as a Man-in-the-Middle, can therefore decrypt a Terminating TLS session, in order to obtain sensitive information.
