POODLE Testing Results for Lync

[UPDATE: Added Win7, SNOM and AudioCodes device results.]

This is a follow up post from my earlier post on the POODLE vulnerability and Lync.  Some folks have asked if I have tried this or that so I decided it would be best to simply post the table of the tests I’ve completed.  If there is something in particular you want me to test, just let me know.  If you favorite device isn’t listed here – send me one and I’ll test it.

As always, if you have a question please feel free to ask.

I simply haven’t gotten to the mac yet.  That would require me to get out of boot camp and Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro is very pretty!  So I’ll try to wrap that up by the end of the weekend.

The moral of the story is this.  I haven’t found anything that doesn’t work yet.

    Thanks Richard! This is great! I see where the MVP status comes into play. :) Any value in testing Windows 7 since most major companies are using this version of Windows and it operates on the same kernel as server 2008 R2, which has TLS disabled by default?

    • Richard Brynteson Reply

      I’ve already started working on this. So far, all signs point to no issues. All of my testing thus far has TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 enabled on the box via registry settings and IE settings.

    Hi Richard, can you be a little clearer on what is represented in this table? I assume that you have turned off SSL3.0 on the server and then tried to connect all these client types (on Win7, 8, 10, mobile, etc) in these scenarios?

    • Richard Brynteson Reply

      Yes, without the first article, there is some missing context I suppose. Yes – I disabled SSL 3.0 and verified that I could connect from each of these devices. I started this before Microsoft put out any real information about POODLE and SSL 3.0.
