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.

The integration is straightforward, based on a few lines of JavaScript code that act as a bridge between Lightstreamer and jqGrid.
