SSL/TLS protocols renegotiation vulnerability (Lightstreamer is safe)

Very recently, a new vulnerability in the SSL and TLS protocols was discovered, which may allow attackers to execute an arbitrary HTTP transaction. It seems that many SSL/TLS libraries will need to be patched in order to prevent such vulnerability.

A global update on the issue is available from CERT.

We have checked the Lightstreamer Server code and we can confirm that Lightstreamer is not affected by this vulnerability.

I just tested version 0.9 of Ozone, a new browser for Symbian phones.

It is based on the WebKit engine and seems to be very fast and compliant to standards.
