AES is a more efficient cryptographic algorithm. The main strength lies in the option for various key lengths (AES uses keys of 128, 192 or 256 bits) which makes it stronger than DES.
The vulnerabilities are seen in a PCI scan due to SSL 64-bit Block Size Cipher Suites 443 / tcp / www CVE-2016-2183, CVE-2016-6329 and SSL Medium Strength Cipher Suites.
3DES uses 64 bit blocks.
Form 22.214.171.124-9sv onwards , an option, "Ciphersuites", is available in System > Administration page. Administrator could choose to set Ciphersuites : "Modern compatibility" to disable unsecured ciphers.
If the "Ciphersuites" are set to Modern compatibility, the following ciphersuites are used:-
