Steal a game...fold for the cause. Just make it fold for team "anonymous" so it's all good.

I call Bull :turd:

Team FTL was not putting up any points in 08/08 or 09/08. In 10/08 Team FTL puts up 4.7M points. In 11/08 it jumps to 22.9M, and increases until the smackdown in 02/09, and continues today...

You've called to have a number of your members banned on your blog, yet some of these names are still your top producers...have you directly asked Pandegroup to block these users? I bet they would take them offline in a heartbeat.

It's time to do the right thing, voluntarily disband the team. Whoever did this made your name mean Team For The Loss. Reguardless whether this was secretely santioned by the team, or done by one or more rouge members with a blind eye turned, it ruined your team's name.

Nearly 6,000 active users and 15,000 inactive users for a team that started folding in October of last year is a rapid rate of growth. It reeks of a hack. I think that Team FTL started as one guy with a trojan hack and a few who may have legitamately joined later. Just my

The scary thing is, it would be easy for whoever did this to put any name and team number into the client and tarnish a legitimate teams reputation.

Although i'm not saying that's what happened here.

As far as we know, the illegal installation of FAH was due to an installer, which was similar to the OCAU MSI Installer (google that), except that the client.cfg had preset a username and team. This broke two elements of EULA: not providing enough information to the end-user, and distributing the client outside of the Folding@Home website.

Currently, we have a copy of that installer (that account in the installer has already been banned), and it does not contain trojans. It is just a normal MSI installer, just that users are "tricked" into installing it without sufficient information about the project. In a sense, it was not hacking either, simply what we term "manipulation of the end-user".

From what we guess, someone got over-enthusiastic about the project and created these installers without first consulting the EULA nor giving enough information to the end-user. I honestly cannot think of a reason why people who want to do such a thing for a free project otherwise.

For the 133 accounts listed on the blog, we are searching for the original installer or instructions that created these accounts. Pande Group does not ban users without sufficient evidence.

And no, we don't see a reason to disband a team we worked so hard for (else we would've just ignored this and created another team). If your Overclock.net team was sabotaged in a similar way, are you going to ask your entire team to be disbanded? I think not.
