SSL3 Disabled On All Servers

October 16, 2014

Due to the recent POODLE vulnerabilty discovered in SSL version 3.0, we have disabled SSL3 on all shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.

We are notifying all of our customers of this change because it has a small risk of excluding users from services of yours that run over HTTPS, primarily Internet Explorer 6 web browser users on Windows XP. The risk of exploit far outweighs any other risks, so we’ve decided to err on the side of caution rather than implement awkward and less effective solutions.

If you believe that this will affect your services adversely, please get in touch to discuss an interim solution.
