Apropos which:

Since this is a Google employee speaking as a Google employee, perhaps Google could share the technical details of the attack with the forum?

The CRIME attack

We present a new set of attacks against old and new secure Internet protocols. Some of the most popular websites, browsers, and protocols are vulnerable. By vulnerable we meant the duo sitting next to you in coffee shops can get access to your emails, bank accounts, social networks, etc. We've worked with relevant parties to fix what can be fixed. We have a good news and a bad news for you. The good news is we've got working patches for most of the issues. The bad news is some of them might contribute to global warming. Let's upgrade and go plant some trees!
