Now it’s Official – Time to Disable SSL 3.0 on Your Browser

This week, StarChapter is disabling SSL3 in response to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL 3.0) vulnerability, known as POODLE. We covered the topic in our last month’s blog.

If you are using an older browser, such as Internet Explorer 9, disable SSL 3.0 and manually enable TLS 1.0/1.1/TLS 1.2. Read this article on how to make the changes in major browsers https://zmap.io/sslv3/browsers.html

Since Internet Explorer 9 is the most common browser to still use SSL 3.0, we have included images and instructions on how to disable SSL 3.0 on your browser and activate the safer alternatives. 

In Internet Explorer, look for the small gear icon at the top right and choose Internet Options:

In the Internet Options window, go to the Advanced tab on the far right. Scroll to the bottom and you will see options for SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0. Disable these and make sure that TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 are enabled:
