Too Long; Didn't Read
Solana's core development team is yet to address the rumored attack, which is said to have taken place in the early hours of January 4th. A distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) overwhelms a network by sending multiple commands to the web resource, making the network slower than expected. The community explained that the hacker might have used spam to carry out the attack. The Solana community caused a massive stir on Twitter and Reddit, where users complained that such an outage is a significant blow to serious Solana traders. Today marks the third time Solana has experienced such an attack in six months.
