Our public name servers were struck with some sort of denial of service attack today that stopped them all from functioning. A restart brought them back online. I am still researching this and trying to gain a better understanding of who is doing what and how to prevent a recurrence.
If you find your website not working or if you are using our name servers and find that you can not resolve pages, please contact us right away.
I have filed a bug report with Internet Systems Consortium.
If anyone has any knowledge of this exploit and how to prevent it, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (206) 812-0051.
