BBC reported about two French hackers who managed to retrieve three Bitcoin Cash after seeing a blurred QR code containing a private key on TV.

”Michel Sassano and Clement Storck had seen an interview with entrepreneur Roger Ver on French television. Mr Ver had offered $1,000 to viewers - but a QR code needed to claim the money had been blurred out. The duo analysed a small part of the code that was visible, however, and managed to access the funds.”
