Personally I think an interim step would be a version which has IRC and an option (enabled/disabled) and a "forget all addresses" option to experiment w/ non-IRC node discovery.
You can remove the addr.dat file and run with the -noirc and -nodnsseed options to experiment right now.

I fixed the bootstrap-from-hard-coded seed node code a couple of months ago, so use a recent version of bitcoin to see it working properly.

Thanks I will check it out.

lol I used to solomine litecoins with rpcallowip=*
I too thought that the worst that could happen would be for someone else to mine for me(don't think I forwarded the port on my router though) guess I got lucky.

With litecoin, there's no default rpc password. So unless you set the password to something like "password", you are not that vulnerable. Of course, it's still not totally safe to do rpcallowip=*.

This problem really only affects fairbrix and tenebrix. Lolcust released tenebrix with a default config file that has a default rpcpassword and I didn't change it for fairbrix. There's a reason why bitcoin does not have a default rpc password and forces you to set one the first time you try to use RPC.
Solidcoin has a default rpcpassword too and you have to have one set if you want to mine solo using the built-in miner.

Same here. There should be some kind of warning in the client when the configuration is clearly too open such as rpcallowip=*. I never thought RPC was for anything else than mining... I think I kept it at rpcallowip=127.0.0.1, though.

I've just noticed a transaction I did not initiate appear in my Fairbrix client.
Can anyone elaborate on this?
Could this be some sort of evil malware (on ubuntu)?
here is a screenshot.

See a fork in NEXT BLOCK section?
