Kaspersky says that ransomware
is on the rise. Videogames are good
for the eyes. Hackers were targetting DNS
servers but luckily nothing happened.
The attack appears to have focused on the Domain Name System, which maps
text-based domain names, such as "News.com," to the actual numeric
IP addresses of servers connected to the Internet, and vice versa. Several key
DNS servers saw traffic spike in the early morning on Tuesday, several experts
said--a sign of an attack.
