Sorry for my poor English.
Please repair the loopholes. Here is an example.

I change the credit and you will find it's a fake result easily. Also it's impossible to complete the task at this rate with a NVIDIA NVS 5400M.
It caused by not multiply verified and not encrypted checkpoint.

I sure wish I could say the same thing to you!! As smart as you are you have done some very bad things to some very good people, I believe in 'karma' do you?

Funny and Antic !
They didn't fix the bugs and just banned me and pretend nothing happened. Ostrich mentality

Fixing the checkpoint issue in the app is pretty easy but omitting the issues with posting results multiple times could take a while as that means identifying any issues not with just the Collatz app, but also the BOINC server code. Each app takes several days to test to make sure it returns correct results. 4 platforms each with several plan classes means weeks of testing.

For future reference, send an email to the boinc_projects distribution or to me directly and suggest changes to fix any perceived security holes. Hacking the results and then posting how you did it so everyone else can copy it and bragging about it isn't ethical. I have to go back now and manually re-issue those WUs which causes me grief and for that.... well.... you may want to check your total credit. It seems slightly lower now than it used to be.

It's deer hunting season. I'm pretty much unavailable on weekends.
