comment Bank login in foreign country
@limbenjamin True, but they will if they think they can get 10 $100,000 ones or 100 $10,000 ones. What I'm saying is that TLS in itself, without certificate pinning and/or extra certificate verification (think Perspectives Project or Convergence.io), will not protect you from MITM attacks.

@limbenjamin To me somebody getting to my bank account is more important than somebody getting to national secrets. And I see fraudulent certificates be created for banks and such. ymmv

TLS by itself will not protect you from a MITM attack, think fraudulent certificates issued by compromised (i.e. DigiNotar) or government owned CAs. As a side note SSL stripping is a form of MITM attack.

I did not argue the possibility, rather the complexity. Tnx for the update.
