Weak Cipher Vulnerability on Apache Web Server

Discussion in 'Apache' started by rdf, Apr 10, 2013.

    We are currently running ColdFusion 9 on an Apache server. After running a Webinspect scan for one of our web applications, a weak cipher vulnerability was flagged as critical. Their recommended change to the httpd.conf file is listed below. We made the change and restarted our server but the same vulnerability came up again. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to eliminate the weak cipher vulnerability?

    Try setting it as below. See if it passes the scan.

    It is used when choosing a cipher during an SSLv3 or TLSv1 handshake. Yes, you can include it.
