Section 1. says:

Since it was released in 1996, the SSLv3 protocol [RFC6101] has been
   subject to a long series of attacks, both on its key exchange
   mechanism and on the encryption schemes it supports.  Despite being
   replaced by TLS 1.0 [RFC2246] in 1999, and subsequently TLS 1.1 in
   2002 [RFC4346] and 1.2 in 2006 [RFC5246], availability of these
   replacement versions has not been universal.  As a result, many
   implementations of TLS have permitted the negotiation of SSLv3.

   The predecessor of SSLv3, SSL version 2, is no longer considered
   sufficiently secure [RFC6176].  SSLv3 now follows.
