It's purpose is to play off an InformationWeek post that does have a title that appears to be designed to draw traffic. DoS Attack Cripples Internet Root Servers by Sharon Guidin obviously leads one to believe that this attack was so big and bad that it crashed the servers and caused wide spread panic. The truth is that it only affected 3 of the DNS servers and they were NOT crippled, they were put into a "slow down" and as Martin McKeay mentioned no one really noticed.
