A Turkish grad student has devised a serious, real-world attack on Twitter

the so-called SSL renegotiation bug to steal Twitter login credentials that
passed through encrypted data streams. When the flaw surfaced last week, many
researchers dismissed it as an esoteric curiosity with little practical effect.
