IMHO SSL is often not the problem. Most websites/webapps are hacked through badly configured and unpatched servers or through programming errors in the site itself.

If I would go kill some for the greater good, I'm not that better than whatever terrorist is running around currently trying to harm others for the greater good.

Byte your tongue.
