There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Some people are trying to kill it or get those coins in sync with another blockchain, like LiteCoin.

Checkpoints inserted into the source and get people too update their clients will help lock in the right chain, but any of the alts that have absent developers are probably dead in the water if enough nodes accept/distribute the other chain, unless someone forks/picks-up the source into an unofficial update/branch.

I know of one dev on a coin that was active. He told me his nodes went all crazy... so I am starting to think maybe an attack

you need to find the ip address responsible and block it.

This is an issue when not enough of the code in a cut and paste clone is changed and then the code is left un-maintained. These scrypt-clones NEED checkpoints added to them at regular intervals (every 5-10K blocks isn't a bad target, more is fine too). If that's not happening, its only a matter of time before a wayward node tries to synch another coin's blockchain and throw's everything out of whack this has happened to Franko, GameCoin, and a couple others. It can be fixed by the "dev" who adds some checkpoints and throws out new binaries on a regular basis.

IIRC elacoin had a similar problem, but it was because blocks were moving so incredibly slow. The QT wallet is programmed to automatically go out of sync if a block isn't found int a certain amount of time. Haven't had that problem in a while Smiley.

You can fix this by putting your own checkpoints in checkpoints.cpp
You don't actually need the dev to do it, you just need to know how to compile the source.
