This is probably one of the worst excuses I could find. The software
being closed source doesn't prevent *AT ALL* any kind falsification.
Relying on such a blatantly wrong security scheme is the best way to
discover falsification too late.

(In fact, the reason why it works is that nobody really *wants* to
falsify the results; at least not enough to take the time it requires to
do it.)
