The GunBroker.com secure servers have disabled the SSL 3.0 security protocol due to the POODLE vulnerability. As a result, if your browser uses SSL 3.0, you may not be able to connect to GunBroker.com login or other secure pages.
SSL is an old protocol which was replaced by TLS in the 1990’s, but has remained in use in parallel with TLS.
If you have an older version of a browser which does not support TLS, we recommend you upgrade to a new browser.
Many newer browsers support TLS, but still offer support for SSL. If you have one of these browsers, you should disable support for SSL so your browser will use TLS. Enabling TLS provides better protection when using GunBroker.com and other secure sites.
