No way. The same thing that previously installed the very same client, would download it from Stanford. Captchas? The same user that downloaded NFL (or whatever) will solve captcha too. I think there is exactly one true solution. Should I name it?



Sure, name it if you doubt the passkey solution.

Looks like they've been neutered.

While they do show up in stats , they are crunching away at zero-ish points a day.....

Thanks again Pandegroup......Keep it up !!

Any word yet on shutting these folks down yet?

It's been over 4 months since the last "reset" and they're still putting out 500K + PPD with almost 3000 "active" members.

You are never a member of a team until you submit your first result. I think that means that Stanford cannot identify these trojan team members until it uploads its first result. Every time some new person is gullible enough to install the trojan, at least one result is produced and that new person becomes an "active" member. Even if they are shut down immediately (on their second WU) you're going to continue to see new members as long as there are people who are dumb enough to install the trojan.

Stanford does resetting the points from time to time, but unless you can figure out how to remove all copies of the trojan from the internet so that nobody can install it, shutting down the clients will continue to be an ongoing process.

It's been 4 months. I'm sure that by now, if they considered stopping the use of either illegal installs, or clients being promoted through pirated software important, that they could have figured out a way to filter out the team # completely so that no points are registered by any members of that team, especially any from the top 2 producers.

Please remember, the team number is not considered until after the work unit has been downloaded, completed, and then logged during the upload. By then it is too late to stop that first work unit. However, I do agree that no more points should ever be given out to that team number. It would help remove the incentive to continue sending out that trojan, but it won't prevent it.

PG will need to find a different way to stop that trojan.

I suspect that "Team 163214" may be a botnet army as well. They are the 11th highest ranked team in active members, came out of nowhere at the end of April, there's no information about the team posted anywhere I can find, and even a Google search returns no evidence of any recruiting, organization, or otherwise. I find it hard to believe you can get 1100+ people together with 89 new members in the last 7 days alone without there being even a shred of information about the team on the internet. Lastly, the usernames look a lot like many of the usernames on Team FTL; which look a lot like windows login names in many cases. Anyway, just curious to see if anyone else had any information or thoughts on Team 163214. Heck, if it's a real team I'd love to hear how they recruited 1100+ members in 3 months without any internet recruiting that I can find.
