The Tron mainnet is back to action after an attack that brought a pause to block production. The attack occurred during the 4.1 version upgrade on the 2nd of November.
Shortly after the attack, the CEO of TRON, Justin Sun, said that the issues had been resolved. Sun said in the tweet:
“TRON network gets back to normal. Enjoy sending money on TRON.”
According to Sun, the block production was suspended because the attacker initiated malicious transactions. He added in another tweet:
“This attack uses the authority granted to the contract developer. The attacker initiated malicious transactions and caused the Super representative to suspend the production of blocks.”
Also, the CEO has assured users that data on the chains are intact and assets remain safe.
Before TRON sorted the attack issue, a Reddit user posted that no new block has been reported on the TRON network. The post attracted several reactions as other users also confirmed the posts. The users added that the network was down for three hours.
Noting that the network nodes have been upgraded, the CEO further said that the TRON community immediately responded to the attack by locating the problem and fixing it.
Reacting to the attack, TRON’s price fell by nearly 3%. With a market capitalization of over $1.7 billion, TRON is currently down 4%.
