It gets even worse than 100 kB.
JT Global charge in 1 MB increments 
Airtel Vodafone charge in 1 MB increments (they say 1 Mb, but I am assuming this to be a typo) 
Sure charge in 200 kB increments 
Presumably, if the DNS cache
I'm not speculating which possible thing I think is more likely, I've only been trying to point out what we *don't* know, to try to counter the stated-as-fact unknowns that various articles have been giving.
(I'm all for getting an answer from Valve about what's actually happening.)
There's no evidence that anything from the DNS cache is sent home at all - perhaps the processing is done locally.
Of course local processing/data can't necessarily be trusted, but this may be just be one of many tests performed to decide the statistically likelihood of cheating.
If anything from the cache *is* sent home, then I will be just as angry as you. At the moment there isn't any evidence for that though.
Yes. However, presumably if Valve are using the DNS cache for cheat detection, then it's just one of many factors that they use to determine the probability of cheats being used.
The decompiled file appears to be "VAC3-MODULE-bypoink.dll", which sounds like it's come from the Windows version of Steam. My Linux version of Steam has no
Do you have a source for this?
I agree that it's very invasive if the list is returned to Valve, however I can't find any evidence that it is. The code originally posted only details the *reading* and hashing of the DNS cache, with no sign of *transmitting* it.
As far as I can see, numerous headlines and articles since the code was posted have made the claim that the list is sent to Valve, without any evidence.
The claim is that the operating system's DNS cache is scanned, not any particular application's history.
Now that I think about it, neither gave a frequency, so both can be correct. Perhaps the title was implying per eight seconds and the summary was implying per second.
Probably not though.
If we assume that the AC was just poking fun at the title/summary disagreement, then it was a fair comment.
You're quite right. I was only looking in the HTML for this thread, but it's still in the title for the the main homepage.
The text persists in the head within a link title:

But it does indeed seem to be gone from any normally viewable place, sadly.
