Hacked

Via Adam (and the v-2 time-zone advantage): "An unusually powerful electronic attack briefly crippled nine of the 13 computer servers that manage global Internet traffic this week. One official described the attack Monday as the most sophisticated and large-scale assault against these crucial computers in the history of the Internet. The origin of the attack was not known."

CNet takes a less alarmist position: "About 4,000 denial-of-service attacks hit the Internet in the average week, according to data collected by the Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis. Many of those are aimed at domain name servers."
