Hijacked means that the person hijacking the connection takes over the
connection and is able to send their own data to the end system/process
and have it accepted as that coming from the original source. This
can't on a strongly encrypted connection.
Denial of service is a different matter, but again encryption can remove
some types of denial of service attacks and open some new ones.
