Hi folks! In this post I'd like to talk about something that's pretty old but still crops up every now and then (example). I know for most folks this is nothing new but I'd still like to have a post about this attack in my archive and also deliver a good explanation of the attack in a way that makes it easier for more people to understand (I know for new comers this attack can be a bit of a mind bending exercise :P). Also if you want to be a total infosec / crypto hipster you can refuse to call it padding oracle attacks and call it by its eponym "the Vaudenay attack" and pay homage to the inventor Serge Vaudenay :)
