Ah, that explains it. Just noticed that all my machines ran out of work. Thanks for posting this here. Hopefully they'll get it working again soon!

Does anyone know when the recovery of server will be completed? I'm afraid of WU deadline.

The way the deadlines work, if the WU has not reached quorum when your computer reports it, your workunit will still count. This provides some protection from loss of connectivity with the project server.
This signature stolen from somewhere.

RCN is some kind of nine to five project now due to the fact that their server has been hacked by somebody. Read this:

Dear boinc community,

on the 7th of November our server fell victim to a hacking attack. The only damage in this context was (luckily) done to my non-existing reputation as a server-admin. Nevertheless it would be irresponsible to let the server online the way it is now.

Unluckily we lack the personal and financial ressources to reconfigurate the server and adapt boinc to close the security leak.

We adapted the firewall settings to prevent at least the kind of attack we experienced this time, however there is no guarantee that not another approach is successfull at a later point.
Thus we will for the next few days leave the server online only during day-time when we can have an eye on it.
We will try to collect all the workunits that are still out there and provide the respective credits. However there will be no new workunits, as soon as the current WU queue is empty.

The project is almost finished, and its a shame that we have to cancel the shared computing at this point, but blame the hacker community.
However we will finish the rest of the computation locally, and keep you informed about progress as good as possible.

Thank you for your support and CPU power,
Greetings, Wolfgang

For today, server is online from 9:00 to 17:00.
The same is planned for Friday, Monday and so on,
until the queued Wu's are computed and collected.

Then: no new Wu's !!
