Why do I receive SSL handshake failures on Windows after updating SSL?

Issue

Poodle remediation on remote Windows server causes SSL handshake failure.

Error message:

Environment

Subversion Plugin < 2.4.5

Resolution

Looking at SSL debug logs, it seems that Subversion plugin tries to use SSLv3 which is not accepted anymore due to poodle remediation. 

Please upgrade to Subversion Plugin v2.4.5 to resolve this issue
