hey guys,

If someone maliciously sends tons of  json-rpc command thru a website interface . (eg , bitcoind->getinfo() or bitcoind->getnewaddress() ..etc)
Does the backend bitcoind exit automatically ?
how many json-rpc commands one bitcoind(core) server could handle ? I wanna know the capacity .

Thanks  : )

Bitcoin addresses contain a checksum, so it is very unlikely that mistyping an address will cause you to lose money.

No, it doesn't.
If you are integrating bitcoind calls into your service it should only be accessible by localhost/127.0.0.1 so only the site can make rpc calls. If you are worried that someone will be making alot of requests, you can make a custom spam blocker server side.

EDIT: Not sure if it crashes if enough requests is made though, I believe it depends on the machine it runs on.

I was inactive on this forum and apparently someone got my credentials and used my account in scams.
I have changed the password and I am sorry for any scam that occured.
