Please read this article and explain how such an attack on the MAIDSAFE network will be unfeasible? It seems that by DDOSing the “good” vaults while at the same time playing submarine with new vaults to establish control over a matter of days, weeks, or months, of 75% or more of the highest ranked, highest throughput most trusted vaults while denigrating the ranking of the actual good vaults will work. And by work I mean arbitrary data modifications by the attackers.
So assume that the vaults with the best uptime, bandwidth, and storage ranking are all controlled by one group of hackers, that is that they are all malicious but are acting perfectly good and virtuous for a period of time to await their big moment when they start acting maliciously to steal safecoins by modifying the safecoin data value modifications. Since the hackers are already doing this successfully at global scale using Tor and Blockchain.info, they are already prepared to make the adjustments needed to apply it to the maidsafe network and have the incentive and means to dominate the network at launch. Therefore the network should be defended against this attack at launch.
I don’t pretend to know the intricacies, I’m not a coder, so I am asking whether this concern has been addressed.
