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  : )

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

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.
