Hi there,


We started receiving reports from customers of F grades when using the SSL Server Test and we can intermittently reproduce on our own site (




We reached out to our partner that provides TLS termination and they responded:


> Most likely this is a grade because of zombie poodle. Our TLS terminators run openssl-1.1.0 and openssl-1.1.1, and neither is vulnerable to zombie poodle.


Can you confirm that this is a false positive on your end or is there anything we can do (e.g. disable certain ciphers) to fix on our side?
