Precomputation attack prevention
« on: July 26, 2014, 10:00:28 pm »

So, bcdev made an improvement proposal regarding precomputation attack prevention. I think his concerns of a precomputation attack happening at some point in the future are valid. This is really a TechDevCom improvement (and he provided some great technical details!) and should be handled here. I will send him a link to this post and we can talk to him more here.

This is already being exploited:

Something has to be done.
