Clients using the library could however set ciphers via an option, but as it would work without, they might not have. This was fixed in curl 7.35.0: Daniel Stenberg (12 Jan 2014) - OpenSSL: deselect weak ciphers by default By default even recent versions of OpenSSL support and accept both "export strength" ciphers, small-bitsize ciphers as well as downright deprecated ones. This change sets a default cipher set that avoids the worst ciphers, and subsequently makes https://www.howsmyssl.com/a/check no longer grade curl/OpenSSL connects as 'Bad'. Bug: http://curl.haxx.se/bug/view.cgi?id=1323 Reported-by: Jeff Hodges Should it get a CVE? Ciao, Marcus
