Microsoft IIS: Disabling the SSL v3 Protocol

Many of us, myself included, have had an interesting month checking our servers against a Poodle vulnerability. That is something I never imagined that I could truthfully say. Well, it is what it is, so if you were playing Xbox or had your head buried in the sand somewhere on vacation for the past couple of weeks, here’s a good article on how to disable the SSL 3.0 certificate.

You should check out IIS Crypto from Nartac Software. They make it easy to adjust your crypto settings. A reboot is still required but IIS Crypto doesn’t reboot the machine – it’s up to you to take care of that.
