Default Large-scale DNS DDoS attack on Spamhaus

From http://h-online.com/-1831807

Almost unnoticed by the public, the most aggressive DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack in the history of the internet was carried out last week. At least this is what the New York Times reports, referring to statements made by a high-ranking member of staff at content distribution provider Akamai. The attack targeted the Spamhaus anti-spam organisation.
