Please take a look at

The list of products (both vulnerable and not vulnerable) will be updated as the assessment is complete.

Please keep monitoring the published security advisory for updates.

To disable SSLv3, do something like this:

parameter-map type ssl PARAMMAP_SSL
  cipher RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA priority 2
  cipher RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA priority 3
  version TLS1

ssl-proxy service SSL_PSERVICE_SERVER
  ssl advanced-options PARAMMAP_SSL

(Omitted all the other important, but not to this exact solution, stuff in the ssl-proxy config)

For the benefit of those that may not have access to the tool you're asking about - here's a public link that doesn't require credentials:

No, Cisco has no plans to make any kind of tool available to test clients or servers (either Cisco products or third party products) for this vulnerability.
