03:22 <sixcorners> PovAddict: So.. BOINC lets anyone that controls the network run code on my computer?

03:23 <Tank_Master> ?

03:31 <synapt> Perhaps if it's code somehow related to the analytical method, some how I doubt BOINC is executing straight binary data from any data package

03:32 <sixcorners> I asked a question yesterday about how BOINC trusts the keys it gets from the projects it attaches to

03:32 <sixcorners> when you attach the first time, you have to trust that the key is the right one

03:33 <Tank_Master> boinc is desined to not allow access to files and folders outside the directories its installed to

03:33 <sixcorners> by running the programs as a limited user?

03:34 <Tank_Master> at least on windows, its a seperate account that only has access to the 2 folders

03:34 <Tank_Master> so more limited than a traditional limited account

03:36 <sixcorners> Well, the limited user account thing is disabled by default, but remote code execution is half the battle

03:37 <Tank_Master> theres been no known cases of that

03:43 <sixcorners> should I try? always wanted to learn how to use metasploit

03:44 <sixcorners> probably wouldn't get done anytime soon though..

03:59 <sixcorners> I see there is SSL support, why isn't that used on these project websites?

04:04 <Tank_Master> i believe world community grid is the only project to use that

04:07 <sixcorners> sweet, I guess I'll switch over to that

04:07 <sixcorners> I bet the individual projects aren't using it, but if the project manager is, that is still a plus

04:31 <sixcorners> holy crap.. it's so easy to create accounts.. I create an account on boincstats with an email with a + and it turns out it created an account with each project I selected with spaces for the +..  at the time I had different emails for each project..

04:32 <sixcorners> I had to track down each account to delete my information : \

04:32 <sixcorners> now this progress thru processors created an account with my facebook email address.. somewhere..

04:33 <sixcorners> a tiny warning before submitting my personal information everywhere would be helpful

05:04 <sixcorners> does anyone have any strong opinions about charity engine.com?

22:47 <valer> Hmm. Apparently SRI International (at Stanford) is now the operator of Arecibo. Folding@home, a Stanford project, is a direct "rival" of BOINC. :) I wonder how this plays out...
