Points for HWBOT Prime and X265 Benchmark Temporarily Disabled

Following a recently uncovered exploit of the Java-based HWBOT Prime and HWBOT X265 Benchmark applications, points have been disabled until further notice. The staff is looking into the issues and will update when the situation is clarified further.

The integrity of both applications as benchmarks is unaffected and benchmark results remain valid. However, due to the nature of the exploit the benchmarks can not be used in a competitive environment.

Thank you for understanding and apologies for causing any inconvenience.

just spent last 2 days benching these two, sure it was an old 4770k but also 20L of juice.
We worked very hard for team cup scores and have first by a good margin, I hope you won't be taking this away from us. If you need any files let me know asap

@GtiJason

We're looking into the impact for various competitions. We're trying to find ways to identify 'bad' results so any action would only impact those results (and not the people who play fair)

So challenger div 1 rd3 stage 4 is x265 1080p. How will this be affected? I was going to do this stage over the weekend, but maybe best to wait? I don't want to burn ln2 if its possible the bench will be removed from the comp.

Thanks

From the looks of it we'll be able to easily identify flaws X265 results based on the 'elapsed time' indication. So it should/could be fine for the ongoing contests.

We'll have more information soon, hopefully before the weekend

Dang, and I was just looking into running X265 since I noticed it awarded hardware points. May not bother if it doesn't award any (not helpful to my team or me if there isn't any reward for running it).

Just ran and submitted some benches on HWBOT Prime yesteday, was wondering why my points for them disappeared. I wasn't even aware there were any tweaks for it, so I'm at least reasonably certain my results are valid for that one.

Hope this doesn't turn into a major fiasco like UCBench did, which is now a worthless benchmark with no points of any kind.

I think this shows something that has been hiding or covering for a long time and is recurrent. It would seem that hwbot does not actually test programs thoroughly before enabling points. Many of us invested a lot of time and especially money in this hobby that turned into a race to see who has more money and despite that is the game we chose to play, but it does not seem at all fair to disable the points after having invested so much.
