Here's the project description, I think it's probably safe.

"Ten Thousand Cents is a digital artwork that creates a representation of a $100 bill. Using custom drawing tool, thousands individuals working in isolation from one another painted tiny part the bill without knowledge overall task. Workers were paid cent each via amazon's mechanical turk distributed labor tool. Total cost of the bill, creation, and reproductions available for purchase are all $100. The work is presented as video piece with 10,000 parts drawn simultaneously. The project explores the circumstances we live in, new uncharted combination markets, crowdsourcing, virtual economies, and reproduction."


Drive-by exploitations don't stop to read project descriptions before scanning ports or sending carefully selected strings.
