Re: Security Researchers

I agree. This is far into the theoretical, as it assumes an utter neglect for all warning - one is maybe acceptable, but ignoring all warnings ventures into the implausible. I don't think it's a concern.

It's basically saying that if you let a complete stranger into the house and then leave him or her alone with your wallet after watching a wanted notice for them on TV, there's a chance that you may be short of a few quid when they leave. Well, duh - most people I know don't exactly struggle to avoid that situation, even without explicit warning.

Genuinely nothing to see here, please move along.
