Last Tuesday (October 14, 2014), the Security Team at Google announced that a new SSL vulnerability has been discovered. Dubbed POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downloaded Legacy Encryption), the vulnerability allows hackers to gain access to encrypted data, including email, banking and social media accounts. Attacks are dependent on the fact that most web servers and browsers continue to use the 15 year old SSL 3.0 to secure their communications. Although SSL has been succeeded by Transport Layer Security (TSL) encryption, SSL 3.0 is still widely used by to support compatibility with Internet Explorer 6.

How to Create a Custom URL

Let’s face it, most small businesses only have one domain name. While we advocate registering different variation of your domain name so that no one can steal your brand’s identity online, it can feel like a waste knowing that the new domain name you registered isn’t doing anything to promote your business or drive more traffic to your website.
