Security Notification – SSLv3 POODLE Vulnerability

- 5 MIN READ - 20 Oct 2014

On 14th October the OpenSSL team reported that version 3 of Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv3) is vulnerable at protocol level – called Phttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/POODLE OODLE attack (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption).

As a security precaution Messente has disabled SSLv3 in our servers therefore Messente HTTP API is no more vulnerable to the POODLE exploit.

In most cases your Messente https:// API integration should already support secure TLS protocol and no action is needed for Messente HTTP API users.

You can also take a look at Scott Helme’s step-by-step guide on mitigating this vulnerability on multiple platforms, web servers and clients.

If you notice any issues with the API calls to Messente servers, please let us know at support@messente.com and we will help you with integration to new and secure TLS protocol.

We’ve developed solid APIs for global SMS messaging and two-factor authentication, which are currently part of processes for hundreds of companies and facilitate thousands of transactions every day. Yet we aren’t stopping there. Effectively communicating with customers and securing customer account access online are two aspects of business technology we focus on. While there’s much more to business technology (much, much more,) these are the two areas which we strive to be the best.  

That’s why we keep developing our tools to address evolving needs in the areas which we specialize.

Tools to avoid breaking the budget with SMS

01 Aug 2017

Getting the most bang out of each buck in a marketing communication strategy requires solids budget estimation. Yet when the budget is broken halfway through the month, the questions arise: How did this happen? How have we sent twice as many SMS messages than we should have at this point? Well, this is where the multipart SMS comes into play.
