Poodle SSL 3 0 Vulnerability - all our transactions are failing as of this morning (PayPal Payments Pro)

In case anyone else is having this problem, all of our transactions started failing this morning.

We contacted PayPal and Cardinal Commerce and Cardinal Commerce were first back in touch which the following information:
"We recently, this morning, disabled any incoming traffic that uses SSL v. 3.0 protocol due to the POODLE vulnerability. From a SSL certificate standpoint, can you confirm that you are not using SSL v. 3.0? You may need to check with your host server if you do not know."

On the PayPal website they seem to have some important information about the POODLE vulnerability:

So I'm assuming that this is what the problem is. I'm also assuming that this will have to be changed by WebAssist.
Hope you can help with this. Anyway, just a heads up for anyone else experiencing issues.
