Yes, and this is utter shit. You want to push CDN bandwidth constraints onto consumer networks in some p2p model and trust the content coming out of it? The idea is ridiculous in every aspect except for those who don't know anything that are buying this paradigm.

The DOS possibilities are endless and the MD5 + layered approach already has chinks in the armor. Come on.

Garbage, move along.
