STEPN was reported to be under attack on Sunday- The same happened in April and May. The company announced via its Twitter handle that it was under multiple DDoS attacks for hours and that recovery may take between one to twelve hours. 

The Tweet read thus:

"We have been under multiple DDOS attacks in the past hours. Securing the servers and recovery may take anywhere from 1 to 12 hours. We recommend you take some rest during the maintenance or otherwise the work-outs may not be recorded properly."

DDoS attacks are one of the commonest cyber crimes globally, interrupting the normal functioning of servers by flooding them with traffic and slowing it down in the process. 
On Saturday, STEPN released its latest upgrade on anti-cheating titled STEPN Model for anti-cheating (SMAC). The technology targeted movement simulation by amending real walking data due to the integrated machine learning algorithm.

Unfortunately, SMAC mistakenly tagged users as bots. Thus, the company had to review these rules so that individuals would not be identified as bots again.
The company has faced a series of attacks, and it hopes to deploy more stringent protection systems in the future to safeguard the investment of users and restore their confidence.

STEPN was created by an Australian fintech firm, Find Satoshi Lab, and is the first game where players earn tokens by moving. According to the co-founder, Jerry Huang, the app has more than two million active users.
