SSL Tests like https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html show a vulnerability against CRIME Attack. To overcome / defend that with apache you can turn off the SSL compression.
That makes it easy to defend it.
During the summer rumours about a new attack against SSL started circulating (CVE-2011-3389).
As it turns out, the attack itself was conceived years ago, deemed impractical, but it was nevertheless fixed in TLS 1.1. The new attack technique introduced a few optimizations to make it practical.
In terms of mitigation, I expect this problem will be largely addressed on the client side, despite a potential compatibility problem that may cause some TLS sites to stop working.
With this config you can avoid that attack.
