"A Brief Breakdown of Monero’s Ongoing Network Attacks" by Seth Simmons FUNDS ARE NOT AT RISK sethsimmons.me/posts/moneros-ongoing-network-attack/ Monero is an open peer-to-peer network, and an entity has been attacking it since October. This blog post summarizes what Monero contributors have done to harden Monero's decentralized network in response to these and other threats. Monero's network is more private and secure than it has ever been. While Monero can't prevent malicious actors from connecting to a decentralized network, Monero's contributors have shown that they will deal with these threats appropriately for the protection of Monero's users.

A Brief Breakdown of Monero's Ongoing Network Attacks :: sethsimmons.me
In this blog post I'll break down a rough timeline of events, a short list of the known attacks that have happened or are still occurring, and what users can do to mitigate these attacks and others like them in the future.
