Zombie POODLE wanders in, cocks leg on TLS

There seems to be a need for a central page somewhere that says, quite simply:

What protocols are safe.

How to configure popular software to use those protocols.

And it updates, say, once every year or in the event of a major incident.

Many of the IT people I know aren't aware of these issues, or of the way to avoid them on their networks, and with the ever-changing climate it's important to not carry old knowledge forward.

I have a browser that let's me checkbox individual SSL/TLS protocols, and I read a fair few tech websites, so I'm fairly confident I'm safe but it would be nice - when setting up a new network - to just have one well-known website to go to that tells me, no, I shouldn't be using WPA or TLS 1.2 or whatever.
