How to upgrade SSL Protocol

Also available in: Português

If your account is using the SSL protocol from a version that has been discontinued (TLSv1 or TLSv1.1), you will need to upgrade.

This protocol is obsolete and has major flaws. Because of this we are adjusting the system to no longer allow connections with this protocol in order to avoid risks.

The change blocks connections from versions smaller than 1.2, i.e.: 1.1, 1.0 and so on.

 

See below for the information needed to perform your upgrade:

LINUX

How to know your Linux distribution (version)?

If you use Linux, you need to know what your distribution (version) is.

Run the command cat /etc/*-release to get the necessary information.

After that, go to the guidelines below:

Ubuntu

Version 04 LTS (Precise)

You will need to do updates per package. To do this, run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install –only-upgrade openssl

You may also need to update libssl. To do this, run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install –only-upgrade libssl-dev


Versions 10 (Maverick), 11.04 (Natty) ou 11.10 (Oneiric)

You will need to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) or later.

The easiest way to do this is to rebuild your server, as it is not possible to upgrade from these non-LTS versions of Ubuntu.


Version 04 LTS (Lucid)

You will need to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) or later.

We recommend rebuilding your server, as the upgrade process is risky.


RedHat Enterprise Linux or CentOS

Version 6

You will need to do updates per package.

To do this, run:

sudo yum update openssl libcurl


Version 5

You must upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or later.

We recommend rebuilding your server, as the upgrade process is risky.

Debian

You need to upgrade to Debian 7.0 (Wheezy) or newer.



If you use some other variation of Linux:

You need to make sure that running openssl version results in a version 1.0.1 or later.

If this is not the case, upgrade by package. You may need to upgrade to a new version of your operating system.

OS X (MAC)

We recommend updating your OpenSSL version using Homebrew.

You can run brew install openssl to install the latest version of OpenSSL on your machine and then brew install python, brew install ruby, brew install php5 or brew install node to install a Homebrew-managed copy in your language.

You will also need to reinstall any dependencies that you have already installed.

Windows

Your development environment is offering a copy of OpenSSL.

To upgrade this, upgrade the development environment itself, i.e. your Python, Ruby, PHP or Node installation.
