New 'HTTPS Everywhere' Version Warns Users About Web Security Holes

News release: “The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) launched the 2.0 version of HTTPS Everywhere for the Firefox browser today, including an important new update that warns users about web security holes. The “Decentralized SSL Observatory” is an optional feature that detects encryption weaknesses and notifies users when they are visiting a website with a security vulnerability – flagging potential risk for sites that are vulnerable to eavesdropping or “man in the middle” attacks.”
