Had you tried the Google, you might have found this: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1880.html

These things tend to be full of obscure notes on this and that that take some puzzling out to see if they're worth a major panic or a "meh". However this particular one says pretty plainly that the associated fix guards against the "Poodle" attack that's been in the headlines recently.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
