The various wire services and various astute ISC readers have pointed out the news of the attacks against the DNS root servers.  We are aware of the attacks, and have been waiting to wade through the FUD before publishing anything more concrete.  I am posting this now just to let our readers know that we are aware of the story and that we are trying to get more information about it.  If you have any more information (logs, packets, or if you actually run one of the tld roots) please drop us a line.

The main story is featured here:

There are some graphs showing the traffic rates to the root servers here:
