Fixed In Version: cups-1.4.2-68.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
It was not possible to disable Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv3) and keep other secure protocols enabled in CUPS. This left CUPS users vulnerable to the POODLE attack (CVE-2014-3566), and needing to deploy the stunnel utility for mitigation. This update disables SSLv3 support by default. For users who need to continue using SSLv3, an SSLOptions configuration directive has been added to the cupsd.conf file for the cupsd service and to the client.conf file for the client programs.
