CCX and Logjam

The latest versions of Firefox and Chrome seem to have fixed the Logjam vulnerability which is causing issues logging into the CCX admin page.

Here’s the workaround:
>> Now for logjam exploit related to the Diffie-Hellman algorithm the workaround in place is as below :
1)    In FireFox, enter “about:config” in the URL field and press enter.
2)     Accept the “This might void your warranty!” warning
3)     In the search field at the top, enter “security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes”
4)    Double click each result (128 and 256) to toggle the Value to “false”

After accessing the page and doing what you need, you’ll want to set them back to true or you’ll be vulnerable.

Another option is to keep a copy of the worlds greatest browser ever, Firefox 24, installed for accessing CCX.  😉
