SSL Weak Cipher Suites Supported

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 26928


The remote service supports the use of weak SSL ciphers.

Note: This is considerably easier to exploit if the attacker is on the same physical network.


Reconfigure the affected application, if possible to avoid the use of weak ciphers.
