SSL is officially dead

Shower thought: if SSLv3 is now officially deprecated, why do we continue to say "SSL" when we really mean "TLS"? I guess there's no really good answer, other than habit.

Anyway, if POODLE wasn't enough to scare you away from SSLv2 and SSLv3, check out this good site that provides all the instructions you need to disable older protocols and get to TLSv1.2.
