I read about this privacy attack to the BTC network : https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/193/how-do-i-see-the-ip-address-of-a-bitcoin-transaction

It is based on network observation from a malicious node. Is that possible in the ETH network as well?

As far as i understand, when your node initiates a transaction, it sends a specific "create transaction" request to its peers, which then know everything about that transaction ( so input / output addresses too) as well as the IP of your node.


Yes. An attack on Ethereum of this nature can be executed in the exact same way.
