There is a solution though. It's called TOR and it allows encrypted traffic to proxy servers through which you can browse the regular internet. I'm not aware of any exploit against TOR at this time that would allow man-in-the middle as it doesn't use the SSL chain of trust.
Tor is no solution, asshat torrenters and child pornographers have ruined the network.
As far as exploits, why, a simple Google search shows there is in fact an easy way to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, even of SSL encrypted traffic
