    aggg

    its annoying I can't access many sites
    According to driverheaven.net

    There appears to be a Microsoft SQL Monitor worm spreading. Massive UDP traffic on port 1434 is affecting major internet backbones, including UUNET. Of course, servers and home users are being flooded as well. Many websites are currently inaccessible or slow, depending on your location and ISP

    Also on http://netweb.us.keynote.com/1/ you can see the health of the net, UUNET is under the worse of the attacks, it as almost flatlined....

    This is the second time that the root nameservers have been attacked in recent months. Would adding more root name servers help out or would that just spread the denial of service attacks to those name servers as well????
    Alright take it ease

    This doesn't attack the root servers directly, it's the traffic that the worm generates while trying to propagate itselft that DOSes routers and hosts...

    Right now I'm seeing about a worm packet (well actually "datagram" since it's udp) hit our firewall about every 5 to 30 seconds. It was about one every 2 to 15 seconds...

    Actually I'm surprised it's not more discussed here on AO...
