On Friday March 6th, another SSL vulnerability was made public. The name of it (FREAK) is based on a factoring attack on weak export-grade encryption keys which were in use many years ago, are no longer used in practice, but are available still in clients and servers for backward compatibility. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Export_of_cryptography_from_the_United_States for background information.
ANI personnel analyzed the details of this attack and concluded that the way we configure our Apache web servers upon which we host Sakai CLE will not allow this type of attack to succeed. This is because we do not allow any export grade ciphers to be used or negotiated for use on our servers. And allowing the use of these weakened ciphers is at the crux of this issue.
For the attack to succeed, there needs to be a vulnerable server and client. Sakai CLE servers that we host for you are not vulnerable, but other personal devices you may own and use may be. Mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc., where you use a web browser will need updates to correct the client side problem.
We recommend ensuring you have updated your Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer (IE) browsers on all devices you use. You can test your browsers by navigating to either of these URLs:
Here are some references with more information about the FREAK vulnerability:

Have you tried to access a Sakai test server recently and found that it was not available? ANI offers on demand test servers for all clients as part of our base subscription. Unless you have a permanent test instance in your contract, our operations team will periodically power down test servers that are not actively being used for a test upgrade. If you need a test server to review against, you can submit a ticket through https://anisakai.zendesk.com and ANI would be happy to power up your test server for a two-week period or longer if needed, just let us know.
