LobbyCentral to disable SSL 3.0 on its systems

As you may have recently heard, a vulnerability in the SSL 3.0 has been discovered, dubbed the "POODLE Attack".

POODLE is the term used to describe the security vulnerability in the SSL Version 3 cryptogram (i.e. SSLv3) used by older Internet browsers. It was identified the week of October 13, and many Internet service providers are working on deprecating or disabling SSLv3 in their systems to prevent any exploits of the vulnerability.

On Sunday, November 2, LobbyCentral will be disabling the use of SSL 3.0 within our systems.   Your browser MUST support the TLS protocol in order to connect to our system.   Most modern browsers support TLS (transport layer security) and should not affect access as long as you are using one the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 9 or higher
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari

TLS is the preferred method of secure communication overriding SSL3 which was used with older internet browsers.   Your data to and from LobbyCentral will remain secure, even after SSL3 is disabled because it will continue to use TLS as the channel.

Please note that Internet Explorer version lower than 9 are already not supported and should not be used to access LobbyCentral.   Versions of IE less than 7 will no longer work when trying to access LobbyCentral.
