Hi, I have found Two users cheating in CODEFORCES ROUND #661(Div 3). They are https://codeforces.com/profile/manasvi200 and https://codeforces.com/profile/DaddyCool__69 their Submissions for Problem D: https://codeforces.com/contest/1399/submission/89018819 and https://codeforces.com/contest/1399/submission/89017408 respectively. their Submissions for Problem C:https://codeforces.com/contest/1399/submission/88997642 and https://codeforces.com/contest/1399/submission/88995811 It can be seen that they both have written the exact same code for the problem using the same variables but one of them has written it inside other function to become safe from MOSS test. THE submission time also differs by 2 mins for both the problems.

How I got to know about this:There is a group of people Who regularly give virtual contests on Discord.These two guys always take part in the form of team So I thought It might be Possible That they cheat in real contests also.

I request codeforces community to Take Some action Against Such Cheaters.

Thank You.

      I think the moss technique of identifying the copied code should be made a bit more advanced. Since not only at code forces, cheaters can be found at CodeChef and other similar platforms too. We need to eliminate them from the competitive programmers' community anyhow.

IDK why there is lots of these types of blogs!? well cf is an online site and its really hard and i guess expensive to dont let anyone to cheat(or maybe impossible). the best thing you can do is to work hard to be better than all of them because most of them are < 1800.(i dont think there is any +2400 cheater in CF) so my advice is to stop posting these kind of blogs and just go and practice!

    Maybe it would be possible to add a way to CodeForces for reporting cheaters? These blogs would then be no more and more cheaters would then be caught.

We need a cheater tag on the profiles of people who cheat it will be better than not giving rating of contest in which they have cheated ratings. Or their rating should be decreased by a considerable amount so that they do not cheat in future
