d3nwyuy0nl342s.cloudfront.net seems to support only one ciphersuite.
That is ARCFOUR-128 with HMAC-MD5. I disabled HMAC-MD5 from the default
set in 2.12.0 because it is not really trusted as an HMAC any more.
If however this is widespread issue I'll reinstate HMAC-MD5 and
remove it when a real attack is known.
