I doubt prime95 has any vulnerabilities quite that obvious, but history demonstrates that anything not written by DJB is likely to have some security issues... that said, George is a pretty good coder, and the source code is publicly available, so I'd have to characterize the risk as low.

Still, cases like this make it clear that company-wide "no distributed computing" policies may be entirely justified.
