To stop the evil POODLE SSL attack on Apache, you need to disable the SSLv2 and SSLv3 protocols.
Add the following line of text to your apache.conf file, usually found in folder /etc/apache2
SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3
Run the apache configuration test command after doing this:
Then restart apache, the “hard” way:
/etc/init.d/apache2 stop /etc/init.d/apache2 start
You are good to go!
