Think of a possible bright side: that Dotster could be trying to not do something similar to what Symantec did by issuing credentials to the wrong entities. If you don't know what I mean, Symantec issued several bad security certificates in 2015 according to https://arstechnica.com/security/2015/09/symantec-employees-fired-for-issuing-rogue-https-certificate-for-google/ and 2017 according to https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/01/already-on-probation-symantec-issues-more-illegit-https-certificates/, and the initial internal audit that Symantec conducted in regards to the bad certificates in 2015 failed to catch many bad certificates according to https://arstechnica.com/security/2015/10/still-fuming-over-https-mishap-google-gives-symantec-an-offer-it-cant-refuse/. Think about the problems that could happen if Dotster accidentally let a fraudster get the bakerlab.org domain if it was not careful.

Message 76328 - Posted: 10 Mar 2017, 7:36:13 UTC - in response to Message 76326.  

I have hacked the /etc/passwd file (on Windows) as such:

128.95.160.140 boinc.bakerlab.org

You mean /etc/hosts. Here is the rest as found on https://twitter.com/chenshaoju/status/839773321759621120

128.95.160.140		boinc.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.142		srv1.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.143		srv2.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.144		srv3.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.145		srv4.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.146		srv5.bakerlab.org

Dude, I was just coming here to post my success story. You stole my thunder! :)

Thanks!!!

I used wireshark to look for DNS traffic, saw that the BOINC client looked for srv3.bakerlab.org. Used the suggested manual IP resolution site, and got its IP.

Here's my hosts file entries:

128.95.160.140 boinc.bakerlab.org
128.95.160.144 srv3.bakerlab.org

Results uploaded fine.

PS: yes /etc/hosts -- sorry, long day at work...

I would have posted the list earlier but I don't run Rosetta. The easiest way to compile the list is to look for bakerlab.org in the local client_state.xml file of a Client that is attached to Rosetta. No need for capturing packets although that worked too.

128.95.160.146		srv5.bakerlab.org

Thanks. It worked for me on Windows 7.

As for Ubuntu 16.10, to edit the hosts file I used:
sudo -i gedit /etc/hosts
and just retried the uploads, and it worked. This is not for the average user, but it cleared up my backload.
I haven't had to edit a hosts file in years, and never on Linux before, so it is a learning experience.

Hello from Rosetta@home: as others noted, we are back on line. I'll spare you the litany of curse-filled phone calls that resulted in Dotster turning the light back on. Instead I want to forward our project's thanks for the support of the community. You folks are impressive. Cheers, -KEL

Einstein@Home

We are experiencing some technical difficulties. The Web site is down.

There is an unknown connection problem with AEI/Univ. of Hannover.

We hope to have things working soon!

Enigma@Home is down because the VPS which hosts the web server is not responding. For the past few days it went offline a couple of times and the service provider was unable to fix the problem so far, so at this moment I'm considering moving this server somewhere else.

Einstein was up again after May 28 but is down again due to a power surge at UWM late last night which is currently not resolved. No ETA right now.

It looks like DENIS@Home has gone AWOL:

    * The project home page displays the message Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
    * Other pages display the error Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() in /home/boincadm/projects/denisathome/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 46
    * Scheduler requests are failing with the message Server error: feeder not running

Outage notice. The project will be down for a day or so starting tomorrow as we transition to new servers using the latest BOINC server software.

Dear volunteers,
These days we have been suffering problems in the database due to an update. Many information was corrupted in the process. We have recovery a backup copy but it is a bit old.
We are working to get everything working well as soon as possible.

Please, be patient and thank you in advance.

Best regards.

World Community Grid is down!

Projects aren't uploading, and the main site displays the following message on every page:

"Unfortunately, an error occurred while processing your request. You can try again or you can Contact Us and tell us about the error."
