people don't need to worry about Trojans with SolidCoin, only one person makes the binaries
Which requires that people actually trust this one person in the first place.

And that kind of trust goes dead against the whole point of having peer reviewed and publicly readable source. Only a fool would trust SolidCoin but there are plenty of fools in the world.

Maybe that's the real attack vector. CoinHunter will slip people a mandatory binary update with no source that searches for BitCoin wallet.dat's and sends them to him. It won't work against anyone who sets up their systems right but we already established SolidCoin users are fools.

It is rather impractical to run any kind of Solidcoin-based service or even just a miner without using some kind of auto-updater at this point, so if he offered the option of one in the client people would probably be quite happy to enable it.

Why would you go for wallet.dat? Install a key-logger via auto-update and go for credit card info, bank website passwords, and the brass ring.

Odd, Block Explorer seems to be working fine from my end, and also appears to be working for many others.

Note: I created and run the SolidCoin block explorer.

As usual though you're ignorant about many things SolidCoin, source was released not long after the binaries. Unlike perhaps Litecoin, people don't need to worry about Trojans with SolidCoin, only one person makes the binaries and we have done so for nearly 6 months without any issues, we have a history of being safe.
Oh, Litecoin comes with troyans? Also when I compiled it after reviewing the source code?
Do not blame others without getting your facts right. Please quote the "trojan" part of Litecoin (there is none...) before blaming others, trying to distract attention. That is just a fallacy.

By the way, a single person is the worst warranty you could give for ANY venture. Be it a business or the one who compiles the binaries, there is too much risk in using a single person to do so in a money-related environment.

Take it as free advice, since you don't seem to know what you're trying to achieve.
