You guys should really consider whether or not to publish this info to the public, or perhaps choose better wording. Trolls in Poloniex have been talking about the DDoS attack and making it appear as if this is a Dash.org problem when it's really not, it's just business as usual. It doesn't make Dash look safe to the majority of people that don't understand what a DDoS is.

Of course it is a problem of Dash.
The IP addresses of the masternodes are visible, remember?
This is a huge problem, and although the Masternode's Democracy decided to hide the IPs, the core team did the reverse.
They are going to pay now, because they didnt respect Democracy.

Fearing of trolls will get you nowhere, they've been FUDing since the very beginning - questions can be answered and concerns can be addressed. Hiding information - that's what could really bring us troubles because that would mean losing people's trust in openness and honesty of the team and we surely don't want this.

It is not about honesty. It is about the transformation of Dash from a revolutionary darkcoin to a systemic coin that serves the dishonest state's purposes and goals. This is the underlying reason you rejected both IPv6 and Tor network, and you stuck to IPv4.

Although solutions to the problem have been proposed, 1 year before the DDOS attack by me and after the DDOS attack by @camosoul (here)

How effective would something like Pritunnel with "Automated failover" work for ddos on a vpn node?
