2013 was the year when BREACH attack was introduced to Black Hat USA that is still a serious attack vector that exploited compression to compromise SSL connections.

In this talk, methods are proposed to practically extend the attack against the most commonly used encryption ciphers. Command-and-Control technique is described to exploit plain HTTP connections in a persistent manner. Statistical methods are also presented that can be used to bypass the noise present in block ciphers as well as noise present in web applications.
