Hackers Attempt To Crash The Internet

Hackers have attempted to topple key parts of the internet's backbone, in one of the most significant attacks of recent years.

The target was a number of servers that help to direct global internet traffic.

In the early hours of Tuesday three key servers were hit by a barrage of data in what is known as a distributed denial-of-service attack.

There is no evidence so far of damage, which experts are saying is testament to the robust nature of the internet.

About the time that was happening, I got a 404 error trying to go to Google. Two minutes later it worked.
