I ran a scan on my computer today and rec'd the following message connected to my Technicolor Router.....
“Your device is at risk of SSLv2-Drown Vulnerability.

You received this notice because an SSL Drown is detected. This vulnerability allows attacker to break network security, encryption, and steal sensitive data, including passwords, credit card numbers, trade secrets, or financial data without you knowing it. SSLv2 that allows special DROWN (Decrypting RSA with Obsolete and Weakened eNcryption) attack makes real-time man-in the-middle attacks possible.”
