I’m reading about the possible attacks on the network:
What about a dataflood attack? let’s say I have some money and I want to bring down Maidsafe. I go into the sourcecode of the software and make it so that the software goes online, creates a random inlog, pin, pass etc. Maybe I get some free 3 gigs of storage to use without the need for any safecoin. I upload random data tot the account to fill up the 3 gigs, disconnect and than re-connect some time later to do this again. Maybe I can create like 100 fake accounts a day to hurt the network. The data will never be asked for again, but nobody knows what it is, who filled up the fake accounts etc.
Even if we have 1 corrupt regime somewhere with a dictator who doesn’t like Maidsafe there can be trouble…
Is there any protection to this type of attack?
