    <div>Well lets be honest: there have been
      slip-ups with the ECDSA algorithm before, these attacks allow you
      to compromise people's Bitcoin wallets from their public
      signatures (some sloppy apps have apparently done this).<br>
      <br>
      While I'm thrilled about a lot of the cryptographic technology
      behind Bitcoin, it lends itself to a level of understanding many
      wont understand, and with so many half-assed applications out
      there I'm not surprised some of them are implementing the
      cryptography wrong and putting people's money at risk. However I
      love seeing public-key cryptography being used more and more, and
      those kinks will continue to get worked out.<br>
      <br>
      I wouldn't say it's "time, determination and skill" so much as
      it's "too many hands in the honeypot, with most not knowing what
      they're doing, take advantage of one of them".<br>
