Reports Say Solana hit by DDoS Attack Again

Share on:

Solana Blockchain is reportedly hit by another DDoS attack on December 9th. This attack clogged the network, however, it remained online.

Solana’s blockchain suffered a distributed-denial-of-service (DDOS) attack over the past 24 hours. This type of attack involves the network being stormed by fake traffic from botnets. The network is overwhelmed by a DDoS attack and goes offline. Nevertheless, in the case of Solana, the blockchain was online throughout the attack.

This is the second time Solana withstood a DDoS attack. Back in September, the network went offline for 17 hours after the mass bot activity in lieu of initial Dex Offering (IDO) on a Solana-based Decentralized exchange platform Raydium.

Blockasset, a Solana-based non-fungible token platform, highlighted the attack around 3 PM UTC.

“We are aware tokens are taking a long time to distribute. The Solana chain is being overloaded with DDoS attacks which have clogged the network causing delays.”

The nature of the attack is not clear yet as the Solana foundation hasn’t confirmed it publicly.  The company says that its network is operating as usual. However, multiple Twitter accounts mentioned the issue being faced on the Solana blockchain.

The blockchain industry is improving at a rapid pace. However, there are still glitches appearing every now and then. Solana’s developers are active and hope to bring it into competition with the ethereum blockchain.
