On the morning of 22 October (NZ Time, 21 Oct US Time) 
E-Secure-IT alerted its subscribers on this international 
root-level server attack. 

The first indication was (to our knowledge) posted in Nanog:

Subject: root servers DDoS

Anyone have insight into the (seemingly) DoS attack on root-servers which
started around 20 UTC and widened to more servers on 20:35 UTC?

Not that it´s causing any serious operational problems but slows down things
a
lot.

| It's a bit unusual that this hasn't been carried by anyone else yet I
would
