Less than 10 percent of the most popular websites offering Secure Socket Layer protection are hardened against known attacks that could allow hackers to decrypt or tamper with encrypted traffic, researchers said Thursday.

The grim figure was generated by SSL Pulse, a website that monitors the effectiveness of the 200,000 most popular websites that use SSL, also known as Transport Layer Security, to protect e-mail and other sensitive data from being snooped on while in transit.
