Uncle maker: Timestamping attack on Ethereum – Is it possible on Monero too?

There is a attack on the concensus protocol of Ethereum, where miners can replace the last mined block by mining a block with higher difficulty and lower timestamp.

IIRC the Monero concensus protocol does the difficulty adjustment every n blocks, like Bitcoin, and not between each block like Monero. Is that correct? And does that mean that Monero isn't susceptible to this kind of attack?
