Eclipse Attack

An Eclipse Attack is a type of network attack whereby the attacker targets and isolates nodes, making them unable to communicate with other nodes on the network. They do so by flooding the network with illegitimate nodes so that a target node can only communicate with attackers. From there, attackers can post false transactions or initiate a double-spend attack, which the target node might pass as legitimate.
