After Ropsten is revived from the attack, I tried syncing with geth --testnet removedb && geth --testnet --fast but I got inconsistent results every time.

Currently, eth.getBlock('latest').number returns ~963k where as https://ropsten.etherscan.io/ shows the latest block as ~834k. Am I connected to peers that are still running the attacked Ropsten? Are there trusted bootnodes for the new testnet?

I'm using Geth version 1.6.0-stable.

According to ethereum/ropsten, the bootnodes are:

  • enode://20c9ad97c081d63397d7b685a412227a40e23c8bdc6688c6f37e97cfbc22d2b4d1db1510d8f61e6a8866ad7f0e17c02b14182d37ea7c3c8b9c2683aeb6b733a1@

  • enode://6ce05930c72abc632c58e2e4324f7c7ea478cec0ed4fa2528982cf34483094e9cbc9216e7aa349691242576d552a2a56aaeae426c5303ded677ce455ba1acd9d@
