New SSL/TLS Attack - FREAK

A new SSL/TLS vulnerabilty was recently discovered dubbed "FREAK". Originally it was thought that only OpenSSL was vulnerable, however, Microsoft just issued an advisory (3046015) describing the affected versions of Windows. The default configuration of Windows 2003 is vulnerable, however, Windows 2008 and above are not affected in the default configuration. The Best Practices template in IIS Crypto solves this by removing the affected cipher suites.

Hello I have a question
Do you know if there are changes to the registry when using Nartac IIS Crypto "best practices"?
