There are several versions of TLS. TLS1.1 end of life is soon and it will be out of support very soon, most browsers will remove it in 2020. You should upgrade to support at least TLS1.2 which was released more than ten years ago. Upgrading to a new version is not that complicated. Just update your browser.
We stopped serving SSL altogether a while back. One big reason for this deprecation is not just security of people who use the old browsers but also people who use a secure and modern system as well. There's something called downgrade attack . Using this attack, a secure connection (in a modern setup) can be easily compromised by forcing them to use old protocols like TLS 1.1 (or worse, SSL) instead of the secure ones. I'm all for giving the most access to everyone in this world but not at the cost of compromising security everyone else.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downgrade_attack On Sun, Nov 24, 2019 at 9:30 PM Benjamin Ikuta <benjaminik...@gmail.com> wrote: > > > Was support for legacy TLS temporarily discontinued or something? > > I noticed I couldn't connect the other day, but now it seems I can again. > > For what it's worth, I strongly oppose any measure that makes Wikimedia > projects less accessible. > > > > > _______________________________________________ > Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: > https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and > https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l > New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org > Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, > <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe> -- Amir (he/him) _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
