[Dshield] vunerability windows

Yes, it is true that SETI runs in the background.  The units of work to be 
done (WU) are downloaded (FTP) intentionally by the PC owner, then run on a 
special program he previously downloaded.  SETI only calls home when the 
work is done (and is usually configured to ask permission first).  No 
firewall penetration by SETI occurs unless permission has been granted first.

Interesting.   BTW, is it true that SETI has a project before that uses
the CPU resources of an online computer (with permission  of course) when
it's on screen saver mode?  If ever this is true, wonder how do you set it
to pass through  a firewall
