OK, this vulnerability got me thinking and really should be read by everyone so that we can all broaden our views a little bit. Bitfools commentary really made me laugh and I agree with him to certain extent, but I wouldn't say it is a fairy tale - it is obvious that this lady/guy has put some effort and at least I am glad there was a through research made by blockchain.info.

This case and case of Large Bitcoin collider shows us that, no matter how safe we believe the technology to be, we have to continue to read, research, study, and adapt. Always remember that the producers of Titanic believed it to be unsinkable and remember that the human race has a vast history of adopting something it had not been ready for yet (nuclear energy for example....).

Mind=blown

Wrote a couple of scripts and tested myself. Shit is real. Take a look at this guy, for example. Last transaction only a couple of days ago:

https://blockchain.info/address/1HZwkjkeaoZfTSaJxDw6aKkxp45agDiEzN

"Jeff was here" is all over the blockchain. Guess he (she/it) has a compiled majestic wallet with a script that immediately transfers any incoming transaction to his own safe addresses.

Congrats Jeff.

sha256(666) leads to 1Az4F5yC19WZt5XMuc6x11xJM81VcJyHQA which in 2014 received 666 satoshi. Hell, that's funny.

 I was trying to do the same steps pointed in the original article, but first of all I tried to get the whole database from the blockchain.
I used ABE library to copy the data from bitcoinCore to a SQL database, unfortunately, It take a looooong time to make this job. So, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make this job as faster as possible. I'm trying to do this as exercise. I'm new in the bitcoin world, but i'm used to programming in a python and C/C++ throughout my career.
Could anyone explain me the faster way to put the whole blockchain into a database?

Thanks for your time!

I've read your post and seen that you wrote a script for this, can I see the script that you wrote? I would like to know how it works and reverse engineer this particular script.
Please pm me. Thanks!

If I were able to find a private key from an address with a decent amount I would really consider to go Robin Hood-ish on it...
There are so many people in desperate need that it would worth it

From the digging the user /u/n0mdep did on reddit, it appears to be an old PHP library issue, wallets using this library may be a possible source. One of the addresses ("1JCuJXsP6PaVrGBk3uv7DecRC27GGkwFwE") is mentioned in a 2017 PHP bitcoin shopping cart issue. https://github.com/coinables/Bitcoin-NoAPI-Shopping-Cart/issues/2
