Notice regarding POODLE SSL 3.0 security flaw
Posted by Pieter Van Hiel on 23 October 2014 02:40 PM

A recently discovered flaw in the software used to establish a secure connection between web browsers and servers might give hackers the ability to steal your personal data. The flaw, nicknamed “POODLE” by the Google security researchers who uncovered it, exists in the obsolete SSL 3.0 software used in the early days of the web. While SSL 3.0 has long since been superseded, most browsers still have the ability to use it in order to be compatible with older websites. 

How does the flaw work?

Browsers normally no longer use SSL 3.0, but a hacker might be able to force it to do so. The hacker could then spy on your online activity and steal personal information, such as credit card information. No actual attacks are currently known to have occurred. According to Google, most home users are safe from the flaw, as the hacker would have to be able to tap directly into the connection between the user and server. This could happen if you access the Internet through unsecure Wi-Fi.

Is there a problem with my ClubRunner software?

POODLE is not a flaw with the ClubRunner software or the Sage Payment Solution we use to process transactions. POODLE is a security vulnerability that impacts ALL current web browsers. As such, upgrading your browser is a good idea for all Internet users.

What is ClubRunner doing to protect me?

Though no attacks have been reported, one of ClubRunner’s e-commerce providers, Sage Payment Solutions, will block browser connections made via SSL 3.0, effective Nov. 17, 2014. After that, browsers making use of SSL 3.0 won’t be able to connect to ClubRunner sites to process transactions.

How do I know if I am vulnerable to this flaw?

This website will automatically check your browser software to determine if it is vulnerable to POODLE.

How do I protect myself?

Web browser companies have issued updates to close this security hole. ClubRunner clients are asked to update their browsers to the latest version to obtain these updates.  To find out if you are using the most recent version of your web browser, click here.  If you don’t wish to update your software, you can set your browser to manually block SSL 3.0 connections.  Click here to find out how.

Website Designer 3.0 - Ability to add extra class using class codes in CSS Stylesheet

Advanced users that customize their websites using custom stylesheets can now add extra class codes to customize internal pages of the website in addition to the homepage, in order to give various pages a different look. What this means is while your homepage can be designed one way, an Events page, for example can have a completely different look altogether.

Website Designer 3.0 - New Website Contact option added for Contact forms for Districts

Similar to clubs, Districts too can now define an individual as the website contact who will receive all inquires from the general Contact Us form on the website. To define a website contact, click on the Website Designer 3.0 link and then navigate to the Settings page. From here, you will be able to go to the Website Contacts page from where you'll be able to select the individual. By default, the district administrator is selected as the webstie contact.

ClubRunner 3.0 - Options to opt out of various communication channels on member profile

For club members that have chosen to opt out of receiving communications from the district (ie: District Bulletin), they can update their preference settings in their member profile. Please note that these preference settings are only applied for Version 3.0. If the District is using Version 2.0 to send bulletins, communication preference settings in the member profile are not recognized.

Volunteers 3.0 - Mail-merge fields updated with new tags

New mail-merge tags have been added to the email templates within the Volunteers module, so that you can further personalize your emails.

Attendance 3.0 - Added excused and exempted member type options to better identify members

New member types have been added to the Attendance 3.0 module (currently available in an Early Access Preview phase). You will be able to control attendance rules and define whether excused and exempted members should be counted towards attendance totals. To learn more about Attendance 3.0, click here.

Dues and Billing - Filter by member type option added to Debits and Credits Report

Due to a high volume of requests, we've added a filter option within the Debits and Credits report that will let you filter by types of members, whether they be active, inactive, other or all. You will now be able to drill down to view the balance of each member based on their member status, and will also have the ability to export the results to excel.

MyEventRunner - Mexican Pesos added to currency list

To accomodate our International clients, we've added new currencies in the MyEventRunner application such that pricing for events can be created with currencies pertinent to the country. This release includes the addition of Mexican Pesos. A full listing of the currencies available can be accessed from the "Event Setup" page found in MyEventRunner.
