Karl Auerbach: ICANN Out of Control. 17 May 2004: “October's distributed, denial-of-service attack against the domain name system–the most serious yet, in which seven of the thirteen DNS roots were cut off from the Internet–put a spotlight on ICANN, the nongovernmental corporation responsible for Internet addressing and DNS. The security of DNS is on ICANN's watch. Why is it so susceptible to attack, when the Internet as a whole is touted as being able to withstand nuclear Armageddon?” Story [RootPrompt — Nothing but Unix]
i wish someone would perpetrate another myth other than the nuclear war myth of the internet. it is just a bit old.
