I am running a full Unbreakablecoin (a Bitcoin clone) node.

Blocks were being generated every few minutes or so, until about a week ago. Now, the block height has been stuck at 82666 for multiple days. Also and all peers seem to have one thing in common: They have some reference to a single IP address of 71.71.215.6

Is this some sort of hack/attack? If yes, how is it being accomplished?

That's unrelated. That should be your IP address.

Either you have become disconnected from the network or all miners have left the network.

  • Wow, I totally missed the obvious fact that 71.71.215.6 is my IP. Thanks for that. It is possible that other miners have left, I picked this coin specifically to try and solo mine a block (for interest, not profit). – Vincent Saelzler Jan 6 '18 at 5:27
