The software searches for five types of signals that distinguish them from noise: There are many variations on how an ETI signal may be affected by the interstellar medium, and by relative motion of its origin compared to Earth.

The process is somewhat like tuning a radio to various channels, and looking at the signal strength meter.

If the strength of the signal goes up, that gets attention.

Moreover (and this is where the viruskiller analogy ends), Peer Block will make you harder to detect compared to others on the network; the Peer Block documentation cites the so-called “bear principle: “when running away from an angry bear you don’t need to be faster than that bear … Ease of Use: What I really like about Peer Block is that it is very easy to use; all you need to do is run it and specify what kinds of “lists” you would like to be protected from (P2P, Spyware, Advertising, or Education/Universities) and that’s it.

you only need to be faster than the guy next to you”. It now runs in the background, preventing your computer from connecting to known bad sources, not just for torrent or p2p networks but for (optionally) for general web usage as well.

The second of these goals is generally considered to have succeeded completely.

The current BOINC environment, a development of the original [email protected], is providing support for many computationally intensive projects in a wide range of disciplines.

Using distributed computing, [email protected] sends the millions of chunks of data to be analyzed off-site by home computers, and then have those computers report the results.

Thus what appears an onerous problem in data analysis is reduced to a reasonable one by aid from a large, Internet-based community of borrowed computer resources.

More technically, it involves a lot of digital signal processing, mostly discrete Fourier transforms at various chirp rates and durations.

To date, the project has not confirmed the detection of any ETI signals.

This can significantly decrease your chances of being detected when downloading from p2p or Torrent networks, or of contracting malware/spyware from known sources.
