Can someone who loves #LightningNetwork tell me why I can't use a network scanner, find a security hole, gain access to this IP, and re-route funds? If I can do enough recon on this IP, maybe get some keylogs or intercept your 2FA, a $184k payout seems worth the effort to me.
This is a sincere ask, because as a threat analyst, it seems to me that publicly advertising your IP and available funds held within a channel seems highly irresponsible. It doesn't matter how locked down your security may be, because if the NSA can be hacked, so can your LN node
Is there some technical magic that you all implement that keeps hypotheticals like this from happening? I have no idea, which is why I'm asking. #Bitcoin or #Lightning devs please feel free to shed light on this. I would greatly appreciate it.
