Let's say Person A is connected to the internet and is browsing websites (HTTPS secured or TLS). Will that prevent information from being captured by a MITM attack? What are some (fairly easy to moderate) ways TLS or HTTPS can be defeated?

    From where did you find this one. Is it based on course project / homework. If not please come back with actual scenario.

    What do you mean by defeat? Are you looking for ways to bypass the secure connection? If so we won't provide information for purposes like this.

    TLS can certainly help prevent MITM attacks but if you have malware or connect to a rogue network or wireless AP, then all bets are off.
