Recently a security researcher at Google announced that they had discovered a vulnerability in the SSL 3.0 protocol, codenamed POODLE (or Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption, if you’re not into acronyms). This vulnerability could allow a hacker to view some contents of secure connections over SSL 3.0

After making analysis of the traffic that flows through our network, we have decided to remove SSL 3.0 compatibility from all of our servers to prevent any POODLE attacks. Since less that 0.02% of traffic will be affected by this change, we feel this is an appropriate solution.

If you have any queries about this change, or have been affected please contact our support team.
