Cosmos-Based Juno Blockchain Pushed Offline in Apparent Attack

A malicious smart contract has put the network out of commission for over 24 hours and comes less than a month after a controversial governance vote.

Cosmos-based blockchain Juno (JUNO) went offline on Tuesday as the result of a suspected attack on the network.

The network remains offline as of press time, but no user funds have been impacted and the Juno core development team says a fix is in the works, according to a retweet from the project’s official Twitter handle.

A Juno core developer speaking to CoinDesk on the condition of anonymity said the network crash stemmed from a malicious smart contract masked to look like a simple “hello world” program.
