What are the potential consequences of POODLE (via OpenSSL whatever) for pfSense 2.1.5? Is there a 2.1.6 under preparation?
Many thanks in advance

OpenVPN uses TLSv1.0, or (with >=2.3.3) optionally TLSv1.2 and is thus not impacted by POODLE.
Is this OpenSSL/GnuTLS/browser specific?
No. It's a protocol (design) bug, not an implementation bug. This means you can't really patch it (unless you're changing the design of the old SSLv3).
Is it relevant for HTTPS only or also for IMAP/SMTP/OpenVPN and other protocols with SSL support?
Also, normally an SSL client doesn't allow the session to be downgraded to SSLv3 (having TLSv1+ seen in the handshake capabilities), but browsers want to be very backward compatible and the do. The combination with controlling plaintext and the specific way a HTTP header is built up makes it exploitable.
Conclusion: disable SSLv3 for HTTPS now, disable SSLv3 for other services in your next service window.
I'm an expert (at plagerizing posts to other threads.) Most of this came from ask ubuntu. Can't verify correctness myself, but seems to make sense.
Also, A current release of firefox is immune to this exploit already. Chrome and IE still seem to be vulnerable. ( https://www.poodletest.com )

Nope, the firefox released last night is still vulnerable, v34 as of 25-NOV will have SSL disabled by default.
change "security.tls.version.min" from 0 to 1
…and you are done. Same thing with Thunderbird (Settings -> Advanced -> General -> Edit Config), find TLS and change as described for Firefox... :-)
Hope that OpenVPN is safe... ;-)

Here is a translated post from the german support Forum here:
The pfSense Webservices are vulnerable!
You might want to test it for yourself against your system:
openssl s_client -connect 192.168.1.1:8001 -ssl3 openssl s_client -connect 192.168.1.1:443 -ssl3
As a workaround (until there is a Patch, e.g. 2.1.6?) just Patch the following File:
Search for thew following Statement:
// Harden SSL a bit for PCI conformance testing $lighty_config .= "ssl.use-sslv2 = \"disable\"\n";
Append the following:
$lighty_config .= "ssl.use-sslv3 = \"disable\"\n";
Just enable "Mitigate the BEAST SSL Attack" in the admin GUI. You will find this under System/Advanced in Admin Access
Here is the complete Patch that I applied to all my systems this afternoon (German Time):
[2.1.5-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/etc/inc(45): diff system.inc system.inc.old 1155d1154 < $lighty_config .= "ssl.use-sslv3 = \"disable\"\n"; 1173,1178c1172 < $lighty_config .= "ssl.cipher-list = \"AES256+EECDH:AES256+EDH\"\n"; < $lighty_config .= "ssl.use-compression = \"disable\"\n"; < $lighty_config .= "setenv.add-response-header = (\n"; < $lighty_config .= " \"Strict-Transport-Security\" => \"max-age=63072000; includeSubDomains\",\n"; < $lighty_config .= " \"X-Frame-Options\" => \"DENY\"\n"; < $lighty_config .= ")\n"; --- > $lighty_config .= "ssl.cipher-list = \"ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:AES256-SHA256:RC4-SHA:RC4:HIGH:!MD5:!aNULL:!EDH:!AESGCM\"\n";
P.S.: If you use other servers (e.g. Apache, nginx or postfix) you need to patch them as well. Just use any search engine ;-)
I committed a change earlier today to make lighty disable sslv3 - it can be added to an existing system using the system patches package.
(Or update to a new snapshot)
Once the patch has been applied, restart the GUI from the console/ssh, reboot, or use /restart_httpd.php
sslscan makes a great test tool as well.
$ sslscan --ssl3 192.168.1.4 | grep -i Accepted Accepted SSLv3 256 bits DHE-RSA-CAMELLIA256-SHA Accepted SSLv3 256 bits AES256-SHA Accepted SSLv3 256 bits CAMELLIA256-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits DHE-RSA-CAMELLIA128-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits AES128-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits CAMELLIA128-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits RC4-SHA Accepted SSLv3 128 bits RC4-MD5 $
$ sslscan --ssl3 192.168.1.4 | grep -i Accepted $
Other potential concerns:
Reverse proxy packages like HAproxy or Apache+mod_security - They have options or allow advanced options to enable/disable SSLv3 - be sure to disable it there in your configuration.

For those wondering about how to mitigate this with haproxy-devel package. (the other haproxy packages don't support ssl..)
When using 'SSL offloading' you can configure on all the frontends that use ssl in the 'Advanced ssl options' the textual option "no-sslv3" can be set this will disable SSLv3 for that frontend.
So PiBa you're saying it doesn't work with Squid as a reverse proxy ?
I tried to change lighttp conf, but still doesn't work.
I have 15 websites behind pfsense, what should I do? change to haproxy-devel package ?
It depends on what is handling the SSL.
If you have squid handling the SSL, you'll need to find a configuration change for it that will disable SSLv3.
If squid is passing the SSL through to the actual web server, then you'll need to disable SSLv3 there.
All server bellow are Ok with their configuration, test OK.
I assume that squid is handling the SSL, but I don't know how to disable it. think in "Squid Reverse HTTPS Settings" ?
Enable HTTPS reverse proxy is checked on my conf, but if I disable it, i can't access my website.

Dont know if this is useful?
"TLS / SSL Options:

3 SSLv3 only
4 TLSv1.0 only
5 TLSv1.1 only
6 TLSv1.2 only

NOTE: some ciphers such as EDH ciphers depend on
additional settings. If those settings are
omitted the ciphers may be silently ignored
by the OpenSSL library.

NO_SSLv2 Disallow the use of SSLv2
NO_SSLv3 Disallow the use of SSLv3
NO_TLSv1 Disallow the use of TLSv1.0
NO_TLSv1_1 Disallow the use of TLSv1.1
NO_TLSv1_2 Disallow the use of TLSv1.2
SINGLE_DH_USE Always create a new key when using
temporary/ephemeral DH key exchanges

See OpenSSL SSL_CTX_set_options documentation for a
complete list of options.

crlfile= File of additional CRL lists to use when verifying
the client certificate, in addition to CRLs stored in
the capath. Implies VERIFY_CRL flag below.
dhparams= File containing DH parameters for temporary/ephemeral
DH key exchanges. See OpenSSL documentation for details
on how to create this file.
WARNING: EDH ciphers will be silently disabled if this
option is not set.
sslflags= Various flags modifying the use of SSL:
Don't request client certificates
immediately, but wait until acl processing
requires a certificate (not yet implemented).
Don't use the default CA lists built in
Don't allow for session reuse. Each connection
will result in a new SSL session.
Verify CRL lists when accepting client
Verify CRL lists for all certificates in the
client certificate chain.
sslcontext= SSL session ID context identifier.
I don't think.
squid conf in pfsense is managed by pfsense, and like this :

I'm not sure I can put "options" in this file.
And I think is there a way to configure squid squid pass through ssl, on pfsense.

Squid itself has the options but the pfSense GUI doesn't. You can could reach out to developer and see if he can add them into the GUI.
For me, I use squid as a proxy (to block ads, certain sites for the kids, logging) but then I fire-up another instance of squid (script on startup) to use my own config file for reverse-proxy. It allows me to have more control since not all the options are in the GUI and also allows me to have 2 separate log files.
I only use pfenses as a reverse proxy in my DMZ, to unload my firewall witch manage all outbound traffic. So maybe I can just instantiate squid with a script too.
How do you do?
On a onother side, I asked developer how to do with the GUI.

So, did someone find a way to tell squid3 to not use SSLv3 for reverse proxy?
I tried to set this line, under "Service", "Proxy Server", in the "Custom Options" field:
but it seems I still have ssl3 enabled
