Just one question about https security (SSL)

SSL is used to secure the web pages between user and the web server. Mostly, used to secure logins and critical personal
information. That way, your username and passwords (if that web server offers https service and really reliable) are
secured via encryption. Even ISP can not read the content but your location, the web server you are connected to, IP
addresses...

Though, there is something strange which just came into my mind. For instance, i am a member of a forum. That forum offers
me https service. i logged in to that forum via https. Then, I started a thread. Can other members display all content?

    No. Each HTTPS session has a unique, random key so two users connected to the same server cannot decrypt each others traffic.
