How do I disable SSL v3?

0 votes
I'm running Apache. Some visitors are getting the yellow sign on their Chrome browser Windows. I'm told it's because we still use SSLv3 (due to POODLE). How do I disable SSLv3?

It's easy to update the apache web server to diable SSLv3 and to protect your websites from the Poodle Vulneralbility.  The exact method depents on which version of apache you are using, but here are some highlights:

For the latest versions of apache, you would simply specify all protocols except SSLv2 and SSLv3.

SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3


For version 2.2.22 of apache and earlier, please use the following format to only allow the TLS protocol.  In this situation, TLSv1 is used as a wildcard to mean all TLS protocols.

SSLProtocol TLSv1


For Apache + mod_ssl, edit the apache configuration file commonly located at /etc/httpd/conf.d/nss.conf to only allow TLS 1.0 and above:

NSSprotocol TLSv1.0, TLSv1.1

Very simple  Way to Disable the SSL v3 Protocol:

  1. Log into your server as a user with Administrator privileges.
  2. Download DisableSSL3.zip, extract the .zip file contents, and then double-click DisableSSL3.reg.
  3. In the Registry Editor caution window, click Yes.
  4. Restart server.
