In a recent Blog posting Google announced that they were getting serious about security.  

“Security is a top priority for Google. We invest a lot in making sure that our services use industry-leading security, like strong HTTPS encryption by default… We want to go even further.

Poodlebleed SSL Vulnerability Announcement

Many website owners and technology enthusiasts already know about the recent Heartbleed vulnerability with the security of a website, also known as SSL. This vulnerability has since been corrected but now we are facing a new emerging threat called Poodlebleed. Poodle stands for Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption but what it basically means is the secure data passed between a secure server and a web browser can be compromised and changed into plain text. That means passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive data can be read and taken while in transit.
