[quote="Papsomax @ April 12 2004,17:43"][color=#000000]Yes Stanford knows about it and has approved of his one-clik.
And yes unless you manually change the config file, you will fold under his name. The instructions are there for all to read, but this is your forum and team and your decision.[/color]
[color=#000000]Really? I would need a link to that approval. Especially since their license agreement specifically prohibits what he is doing.

And the Policy you say they are allowing him to ignore
[quote]What about security issues?
We have worked very hard to maintain the best security possible with modern computer science methodology. Our software will upload and download data only from our data server here at Stanford. The Cores are also digitally signed (see below) to make sure that you're getting the true Stanford cores and nothing else.
How is this possible? We take extensive measures to check all of the data entering your computer and the results we send back to Stanford with 2048 bit digital signatures. If the signatures don't match (on either the input out the output) the client will throw away the data and start again. This ensures, using the best software security measures developed to date (digital signatures and PKI in version 3.0), that we are keeping the tightest possible security.Finally, the client/screen saver are available for download only from this web site, so that we can guarantee the integrity of the software. We do not support Folding@home software obtained elsewhere and prohibit others to distribute the software.
