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.

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.

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
