Rogue Actor Disrupts Lightning Network With a Single Transaction

Wuille has a point. Rumors were circulating that Burak paid $700 to F2Pool, one of the largest Bitcoin mining pools, to have his non-standard transaction included in one of their blocks. He then embedded a bizarre message in the transaction, “You’ll run CLN and you’ll be happy,” a reference to Core Lightning (CLN), which, as discussed above, is an alternative to LND, the Lightning implementation affected by the exploit.
