Huge dDos attack in Europe!

    Attack of 300GBPs. Huge and aimed at SpamHaus (20 DC's globally)! It effected many users globally. I definitely saw slower internet speeds when connecting to servers located in Europe.

    Has anyone else noticed the effect of such a clog on the WorldWide network?

    They said that this could worst case scenario turn off the internet and has already slowed it down? I don't understand how this is possible. Apparently they could hit the internet's DNS, but I didn't know the internet had its own DNS considering its meant to be an interconnected network of networks, the Mesh topology links networks via their own DNS so unless they targeted ISPs I don't understand how this would have a major impact on anybody other than the ISP that SpamHaus is with.
