    Remain calm...this really isn't that big of a deal. This is the digital equivalent of steaming open an envelop... while it's certainly not desirable, the bad guys must be possession of the "envelope", which means they have already compromised either your computer, or the server you are connecting to. There are numerous other ways to steal your data in such cases, this is just one more.  If you ever use public Wi-Fi, you are taking greater risks with your passwords already.
