Currently it would be a problem if MJohn would copy all files to the server. Problems are 1) exhausted disk space, 2) exhausted traffic limit, 3) just slow. Hence the questions: Alexander, could contest server have more space? Would not we exhaust traffic limit? Possible improvements: - compress files (I expect wordlists to give good ratio), - drop git and use something much easier that allows to download one file instead of the full repository (I'll do that for other reasons too: for instance staging of files to check checksums could be done easier), - allow attacks with just sha1 instead of the real files: user does not upload files but shares sha1, so he could stop and restart this attack on his own cores while other users could check they do not run the same attacks, but for modification of attack users should ask the owner (also it is useful because not all users want to share their files), - use other file hosting and/or distributed system for that (many servers and/or torrent (though this needs our own tracker)).
