Really this is only a problem is you are surfing on a public wifi point then somebody can intercept your traffic..cause an error in your secure communications and then insert themselves into your data stream. Keep in mind ssl v3 is nearly 15 years old and has been replaced by TLS. Really the only folks who use this..are IE6. All modern browsers are going to fully kill ssl 3.0 support in upcoming updates…which is about time. Really you are not in danger from this unless your are doing browser on public wifi AND using an ancient browser. Once ssl v3 finally dies some websites may break temporarily and some browsers will break(IE6). This isn’t nearly that dangerous as other vulnerabilities that have come up lately.
