TLS's list of vulnerabilities grows longer still
We saw a very similar vulnerability to the POODLE attack in recent changes to TLS 1.2 / 1.3, which ALSO allowed for MITM attacks on certain VPNs - https://www.thesslstore.com/blog/tls-pinning-in-mobile-apps/. It's unclear from Kelly's article here which VPN services were affected here by the POODLE attack, but in the case of Schneier's TLS pinning expose, we saw that market leaders like TunnelBear and others were affect.

It feels to me as if TLS is 'trying to make up for lost time', ie they've long been second in the cetificate security race to SSL. Now they are releasing new versions of the protocol, only to find that they are not secure.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
