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.
