This would ensure no information is transmitted in the plain text and reduce the attack possibilities against client computers. (I know a lot of info is already transmitted encrypted)

From a client side it will just alert people to change the URL at their convenience, they should:
1. Set No New Tasks to finish work.
2. Finish work
3. Detach
4. Reattach using HTTPS.

Happy to help!

Actually for newer clients it requires no interactions - https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/commit/b695ca2c05c42814bd832d17134dfefd4c9969ac
