Just a quick heads-up about a website that will check the SSL health of your browser, which we think everyone, should have a quick look at. It checks things such as whether your browser supports TLS version 1.2, provides ephemeral key support (essential for Perfect Forward Secrecy), is vulnerable to the beast attack, or whether it supports insecure cyphers.
We thought that we would check all our Windows browsers are up-to-date and see how they fare.
Until today (05 January 2014), Firefox failed the ‘Version’ and ‘Insecure Cipher Suites’ tests, but today’s update from Firefox 26 to Firefox 27 fixes this. Instructions for fixing the problem in older versions of Firefox can be found here, but why not just update your browser?
