Three security vulnerabilities in a year. That's shocking.
Researchers at Google have discovered the third security vulnerability this year called "Poodle" - which stands for Padding Oracle On Downloaded Legacy Encryption — was found in a 15-year-old web encryption technology called SSL 3.0. SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer, is the technology that encrypts a user’s browsing session, making it difficult for anyone using the public Wi-Fi.
The Poodle bug makes it possible for hackers to hijack their victim’s browsing session and do things like take over their email, online banking, or social networking account.
This comes after the Heartbleed & Shellshock discovered earlier this year.

Thank you so much- this defiantly helps me no log into public wi-fi
Although it can be conventions, there is so much liability with doing so it not worth it
