1. What threat model does TLS/SSL not address?

2. Give an example of bad encryption. Explain why it is bad, how an attacker could exploit the weakness, and what resources would be required for this exploit.

3. Browser helper objects, add-ons, extensions, and/or plug-ins are commonly used in a man-in-the-browser (MITB) attack, similar to a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack. Come up with three different examples for how such an attack could cause serious consequences for the user and/or the organization with which she is communicating.

4. Research three examples of known MITB threats. In a one-paragraph summary for each threat, describe the name of the threat, targeted operating system(s) and browser(s), what the attack targets, how the attack is installed into the browser, and how it works. At least one of the attacks must not target Microsoft Windows as the OS.
