The host was blacklisted by me some days ago, I see all the files which are bad and need to rerun.

I understand the action and remediation you have taken for that host.
My concern is whether it can happen again with another host ?

i want more work xD


A new host created some days ago reported a lot of errors (around 100k results are useless) and need to be rerun soon. The validator cant intercept these bad results due the OS which is running there. I set it on the blacklist now.


Stumbled here because of that host, and its user "abcman", and the job logs.

It looks like they created a script to create fake XML result files. The "called boinc_finish" was missing the return code 0 indicator like from a real result.

Hopefully you can find a way to check results a little better before that user changes their host ID and gets back in for another batch. They earned 350 GRC in 36 hours off of this hole.

So if the script was to add the return code 0 indicator they would not get spotted at all or would they eventually get caught in a spot check ?

Are Gridcoin planning on blacklisting the project until this is fixed or will it still allow GRC to be paid for not doing the work ?
