Update Your AWS ELBs to Protect Against the FREAK Vulnerability

The recently announced "FREAK" vulnerability is yet another blight on SSL. Fortunately, AWS has been quick as always to issue another cipher update. To protect your AWS Elastic Load Balancers from FREAK, follow these steps.

1. Navigate to your ELB in the EC2 console and select the "Listeners" tab.
2. Click on "Cipher."
3. Change the dropdown to the 2015-02 cipher policy.
4. Save.

That's it! Your ELBs will now be protected.
