    Akamai is saying their DNS continued to work.

    Akamai has got back to us to explain that the problem stemmed from what a
    spokesman called a "large scale international attack on the Internet's
    infrastructure". Akamai said the attack was primarily aimed at the large
    search engines - of which it runs the three largest, Yahoo!, Google and
    Lycos - which meant that people were unable to access the sites.

    The spokesman denied however that it was an outage and ****said that the
    Akamai name service continued to function throughout the attack**** which
    ended around two hours later.

    Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
