I’m imagining that in the future it may be profitable for attackers to try to undermine consensus using novel means that are yet unanticipated. So I would like to contribute to speculation on possible vectors.

One such possibility would be a timing based attack. I am not quite sure how such an attack could be carried out, but nonetheless is there any possibility of an exploitation based on the way the network, or related systems, utilizes time signals?
