My friend is using PC with Win 8.1 Pro x86[up to date]. Antivirus: Bitdefender IS 2013 When the poodle attack news came into light, he did the following: In IE 11>> Advanced Settings->Security->Unchecked SSL 3.0. In Firefox 28.0>> about:config->security.tls.version.min->modified 0 to 1 In Opera 12.17>> Disabled SSL 3.0 by default. However, when pinged "poodletest.com", it says vulnerable on all these browsers. When checked in his laptop with Win 8.1 Pro x86[up to date] and Bitdefender IS 2015, "poodletest.com" says not vulnerable on all these above browsers[Note: Firefox version is latest 33.1.1] with settings changed same as done with PC. However, I was able to successfully block in my PC as others do. How is that possible? Is the problem with Bitdefender 2013? Is there anyone who is experiencing the same issue? or How to find the source of the problem?
