updated 5 nodes without the need to restart hot wallet.
Did you mean cold wallet?

Every time I have tried this in the past it hasn't worked, the MNs drop off the list after a while. Would love not to have to faff with the local client.

If the downtime is minimal I don't think you need to restart hot wallet. 1 min downtime for MN should not cause it to drop from the list.

Of course the coins earned by those illegal Masternodes did not end in mine...

But a couple of hundred coins are well deserved for the developer of this exploit.
The cracker wrote whole network has to update to not get him being paid.

I see, so i take it the attacker put all his own nodes on the list at took all the block payments........I suspect a disgruntaled miner

I feel that this has been quite an important milestone tbh.

Evan...you're brilliant at what you do. But there are other brilliant people too. This is the whole point of going open source and the best thing is that we have a community to support a rapid reaction.

It makes me wonder how long this was being exploited, and what the real MN count will be afterward.
If this guy were subtle he could have been sapping the network for a long time.

He has stated that he wasn't doing it for money. For somebody of sufficient intelligence and expertise to reveal this exploit I personally believe he wanted to make an impact, perhaps even harden the code rather than profit.

I don't think he/she/it was exploiting the MN network for a long because we would have noticed the big red lines which showed <1000drk balance:
