An attempt to cripple the computers that serve as the address books for
the Internet failed Monday. =

The so-called distributed denial-of-service attack leveled a barrage of
data at the 13 domain-name service root servers beginning around 1 p.m.
PDT Monday and apparently is ongoing, according to Internet performance
measurement company Matrix NetSystems. Traffic from several Internet
service providers have been slightly delayed, but because the domain
name system is spread out and because the 13 root servers are the last
resort for address searches, the attack had almost no effect on the
Internet itself. =
