This morning's DDOS/Virus attack

As some of you have noticed, a new virus was let loose early this morning that crippled most of the internet. As usual Cornell was hit hard, and we are still experiencing only limited connectivity. At the CS department all our security gates have gone up, basically keeping all traffic out, including email.

UUnet has been hit hardest as interpulse reported. UPDATE: details on slashdot and ngs
