Anonymous Threatened To Bring-down Entire Internet By Attacking DNS

Anonymous Threatened  To Bring-down Entire Internet By Attacking DNS
Infamous Anonymous has threatened  to bring down a substantial portion of the entire Internet by attacking the domain name system (DNS) on March 31, 2012. The attack will be part of protest of FBI recent movement of arresting key members of Lulz & Anon as well as the group confirmed that not only this issue but also the attack has a solid relation over the recent take down of the file-sharing website Megaupload. In short it will be the second phase of Operation Megaupload (#OpMegaupload). You can say its a tit for tat by Anonymous. For your reminder FBI also vows to shutdown the DNSChanger name servers on the 8th of this month.
Anonymous members most likely will employ a relatively little-known technique called DNS amplification, which cleverly tricks mis-configured DNS servers into spewing out torrents of useless data that in turn cause other DNS servers to add to the chaos by producing even more useless data that overwhelms limited traffic-handling capacity. Theoretically, the cascade of out-of-control servers could swamp the ability of the Internet to cope, causing millions of websites to seemingly disappear. The financial fallout from being unable to gain access to the websites of online retailers, banks and other institutions could be enormous. Though experts seriously doubt that Anonymous or another group can credibly reduce the Internet to shambles in the near future, but the longer-term outlook is dimmer.
