Another “selfish node” type attack. Looking for comments:
*Chunks are dispersed by going to the node with the id closest to the chunk name
*close group is made up other vaults with id closest to yours
*you are directly connected to your close group. Eg: you can see their ip.
This would mean it is very likely that the members of my close group have many of the same chunks that I do.
If this is the case, what prevents me from DoSing the other members of my close group (out of band, rented server somewhere) so that any get requests take longer to get there, and are also returned slower, thus increasing my chances of winning the “get race”?
