Zombie POODLE wanders in, cocks leg on TLS

Owen
Alert

For anyone in Oz, get this . . . I reset my browser's security to only accept TLS 1.2:

Firefox:

security.tls.version.max 3

security.tls.version.min 3

Went to log into "Seek" (a job web site that used to be mostly "technical") - I couldn't access it because there was no security protocol match. I set the lowest encryption level back to TLS 1.0 and ran the test script at www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=seek.com.au and wrote to tell "Seek" about it.

The result: "Our IT team have responded and would like to thank you for the feedback, they are fowwarding this on to the relevant department for future consideration."

"Awesome" as the colonials here are prone to saying!

I do hope that Google start down-ranking insecure sites in their search results ;-)
