https://github.com/sethtroisi/mfaktc/tree/master mod_simple_96_and_check_big_factor96 doesn't calculate the modulo so it uses a slightly different Proofofwork function (instead producing very large modulos instead of small) https://github.com/sethtroisi/mfaktc...helper.cu#L244 The end result is on TFNF results you get a little extra line like this Code:
M59068201 proof_k(17257705361971287559): 30 bits [TF:60:64:mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs] M59068201 proof_k(1759939290551364353): 31 bits [TF:60:64:mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs] M59068201 proof_k(1297657372566442343): 31 bits [TF:60:64:mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs] M59068201 proof_k(8940824503190951977): 29 bits [TF:60:64:mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs] [Mon Jul 1 21:59:54 2019] no factor for M59068201 from 2^60 to 2^64 [mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs]

What's the appropriate way to report probable false results?
M14951 has a P1 result with B2=9,887,122,214,540,712 which took an estimated 186,161 GHzDays (I guess this isn't impossible, but seems unlikely given the user doesn't appear on any of the top producer lists are regularly submit factors)

Like I said, this is perfectly normal _if_ GMP ECM was used for stage 2. Unless you have some reason to believe that these are specifically fraudulent (apart from the large B2), I suggest that you make peace with it.

Verifying TF was done
There's a new discussion of verification in https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=25493

I reckon we have another potential case of TF cheating / defective hardware.
User Dirk (#21 in top TF list) has 727,087 GHzD credited for 228 trials and 0 factors found. This amounts to an average of 3,189 GHzD per trial. Today I managed to track some of the recent trials, and the last 4 were in the low 200M range, from 2^71 to 2^85 (!). I don´t know about the previous ones, but I find these results rather suspicious. Would someone with privileged access to the server bother to have a look at it?

I'll pass this along to George to see if he wants to investigate further, perhaps talk to "Dirk" about it.

M160173253 That's the only "factor found" result, but it is in that high bit range. The user also has a number of PRP (M78949933) and LL tests (M99688541), as well as a few P1 tests, sometimes on the same exponent: M107772919 For whatever reason, this user likes to factor to high TF bit levels and that's okay.

Fair enough. Thanks for your prompt replies.
