Time Event
Pakistan Orders DDS Attack On Itself
Apparently to eliminate "blasphemous" content (or, possibly, political content), Pakistan ordered its ISPs to block Youtube access for the country. Pakistan's chief ISP decided the way to do this was to publish false routing info for Youtube that would make it arbiter of all queries. The result? Pakistan effectively ordered a dedicated denial of service attack on itself.
