So this is my first post, but I have been reading the forums here for a while.
From what I understand, your private keys sitting in your wallet could someday theoretically be "squatted" on by someone randomly generating that same private key. Now I understand that the possibility of this is nearly 1/10^36 or something similarly small.
What's to stop me from writing a script to write a single transaction for 5BTC on a random public key, to an address in my wallet, until something hits?
It seems very susceptible to misuse.
