The key word there is "known"; although the feasibility of rebuilding a
private key by a normal end user is extremely slight. In any case, I am
not going to be losing any sleep over it. Besides, if I wanted a truly
secure encryption, I would use a one-time pad system. That is about as
secure as it gets.
