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.
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
