When engaging in a multiparty signature, the attacker can more than one
variable to modify.  When you are party to a multi-party signature (for
example, in some sort of coin-join protocol) it could be that every other
participant in the multi-party signature is, in fact, the same single
attacker representing themselves as multiple participants.  This is how the
attacker gets their hands on multiple variables.
