OS X Server v2.2.5
Available for: OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5
Impact: An attacker may be able to decrypt data protected by SSL
Description: There are known attacks on the confidentiality of SSL 3.0 when a cipher suite uses a block cipher in CBC mode. An attacker could force the use of SSL 3.0, even when the server would support a better TLS version, by blocking TLS 1.0 and higher connection attempts. This issue was addressed by disabling SSL 3.0 support in Web Server, Calendar & Contacts Server, and Remote Administration.
