Denial-of-Service Attack on Domain Root Servers

A denial-of-service attack on 13 domain name service root servers caused chaos, but had little effect on the domain name system itself. While the attack continued over a couple of days, the 13 servers under attack are used only as a last resort for domain address searches. The Internet Software Consortium reports that there were no end-user problems.
