The best, albeit brief, explanation I've seen is this one. http://www.bizreport.com/article.php?art_id=4182 It has had some interesting quotes by Bruce Schneier, computer security expert and author. I suspect he'll also address it next month in his monthly Crypto-gram (which is a great newsletter if you don't subscribe -- http://www.counterpane.com/crypto-gram.html).

I just read this story which explains how the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology exploited a flaw in the SSL protocol to hijack an 8 character password from a bunch of SSL encrypted email logins.
I was surprised. What does the security community think of this?
