My System Specs

Default

I doubt setting the team's points to always be the lowest number the stat server can give will do anything that behaviour.
I'm thinking FAH will have to begin forcing a username + pass combo like a lot of the BOINC based projects use, or at the very least, not allow "Anonymous" folders anymore. This should allow them to really stop sending WUs to the fraudulent user names. I almost suggested to have the user re-authenticate for different machines, but you're treading into SecuROM / WGA territory there.

I can assume some people will be ignorant enough to sign up for FAH because they think it will get their cracked game working, but if you follow a cracker's instructions that blindly, you'll already have bigger problems than extra CPU usage.
