SSL Server May Be Forced to Use Weak Encryption Vulnerability

Hi Community,


I am having an issue verifying an issue as a False Positive or not.  The vulnerability we are seeing is “SSL Server May Be Forced to Use Weak Encryption Vulnerability”.  When I run an SSLScan on the IP and port we are seeing the following:


Supported Server Cipher(s):

    Accepted  TLSv1  168 bits  DES-CBC3-SHA


  Preferred Server Cipher(s):

    TLSv1  168 bits  DES-CBC3-SHA

Since key lengths larger than 128 are considered HIGH I am not sure why this would consider the supported cipher as Weak.  Stuck trying to understand this and if anyone could shed some light on it I would appreciate the info.
