Disable SSLv2 in Webmin

I’ve been battling with Webmin trying to get SSLv2 turned off so I can comply with Hackersafe/McAfee Secure.

I managed to do it this morning, this is how I did it:

– Upgrade to version 1.430
– Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> SSL Encryption
– Enter HIGH:-SSLv2:-aNULL into the Allowed SSL Ciphers field (new as of 1.430)
– Restart Webmin

You can check that SSLv2 is disabled by running this from the shell/command line:
openssl s_client -connect localhost:10000 -ssl2

If you get lines like these, SSLv2 is disabled:
419:error:1407F0E5:SSL routines:SSL2_WRITE:ssl handshake failure:s2_pkt.c:428:
420:error:1406D0B8:SSL routines:GET_SERVER_HELLO:no cipher list:s2_clnt.c:450:

SiXXs down?

For some reason seems to be down. I’m unable to connect my IPV6 tunnels to their PoP’s or connect to their website. Does anyone have any idea why they’re offline?

Update: Seems to be back up now. It’s safe to restart your aiccu now
