Dash Core v18.1.1 Hotfix Release
In response to an apparent attack on the Dash network causing degraded performance of the network, we are releasing a hot fix release v18.1.1.
Late in the night UTC, the Dash networked experienced what appears to be an attack. The network did not go down, blocks continued to form and there was no fork. Also for those that might be worried and also who might not understand how a blockchain works, as a blockchain the network can’t have funds stolen (ever!), so all funds are safe.
So while the attack had little to no impact on users of the network, it did affect the infrastructure of the network with a great deal of Masternodes becoming unresponsive. Most of the Masternodes that either went offline or became unresponsive were less powerful nodes that did not have enough memory to withstand the attack.
Thankfully enough Masternodes came back online quickly and chain locks formed again. All node operators should promptly update to version 18.1.1. We plan to release additional information tomorrow.
To all masternode owners : do not use minimum hardware requirements for masternodes, use recommended hardware requirements !!
