Please provide an updated client version that will revert back to block 19100 once this attack is over.
It's version 0.3.24.61, and the downloaded blockchain is up to date. I'm making a backup of the ~/.namecoin directory just in case people are going to have to do things manually after the attack is over, and a trusted copy of the pre-attack blockchain will be needed. I'm not a *coin developer, just a user.
Do you know if the 0.3.24.61 version has a checkpoint hardcoded into it, and at what block number that checkpoint would be?

I haven't tried it and don't know how difficult that would be. I used to compile stuff from source many years ago when I was using Red Hat and often wanted software that wasn't available in the package repository (rpm). So if it's "compile-n-go"-easy I should be able to. Why?
