HTTPS Bicycle Attack - Obtaining Passwords From TLS Encrypted Browser Requests

A paper detailing a new attack vector on TLS was released on December 30. The attack, known as the HTTPS Bicycle Attack, is able to determine the length of specific parts of the plain-text data underneath captured TLS packets using a side-channel attack with already known information. The attack has a few prerequisites but could be applied in a real world scenario, and is completely undetectable due to its passive nature.
