MondoMor writes "One of the guys who invented DNS, Paul Mockapetris, has written an article at ZDnet about the October '02 DNS attacks. Quoting the article: "Unlike most DDoS attacks, which fade away gradually, the October strike on the root servers stopped abruptly after about an hour, probably to make it harder for law enforcement to trace." Interesting stuff."
