Skip image file verification?

#1 Unread post by adrianxw » 25.05.2017 09:24

I saw that skip image file verification was set to yes.

>> Skip image file verification?
>> Check this ONLY if your Internet provider modifies image files (UMTS does this, for example).
>> Skipping verification reduces the security of BOINC.

I had not changed that so assume it to be the default at this project. I checked a few other projects I'm connected to and this was not the case.

So, what is the justification for this - I have changed it for my account.

Yes, yoyo@home, I happened to be looking at my account and noticed that it was wrong, and changed it.
