A process is a single program running in its own virtual address space. Using this definition, everything running under Linux is a process. Process is a running instance of a program. Linux is a multitasking operating system, which means that more than one process can be active at once.

The SSLv3 Poodle vulnerability which was released on October 14th 2014, is an attack on the SSL 3.0 protocol and it is completely protocol based vulnerability.
POODLE stands for “Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption”. The padding attack happens when a plain text is converted to ciphertext. The plain text message often has to be expanded to be compatible with the underlying cryptographic structure and the leakage of data mainly occur during the decryption of the cipher text.
The SSLv3 poodle vulnerability allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to decrypt ciphertext using a padding oracle attack. (more…)
