    "Up until now, SSL systems had been thought to be completely secure."

    Completely secure? Haha. And people wonder how things go wrong.

    just amazing how they play on the uninformed public's fears when they do this... what they don't put in the headlines is that they did it in a controlled environment where they had access to all network segments, and both ends of the session..

    but lets not say, in labratory tests with much work and alot of effort we were able to decrypt a ssl session that took place on our internal network...

    maybe it's too long and needs to be edited to "ssl has ben rendered useless!!!"
