The Times calls the attack the largest known DDoS attack ever on the Internet. We wrote about the attack last week. At the time, it was a large attack, sending 85Gbps of traffic. Since then, the attack got much worse. Here are some of the technical details of what we've seen."

The effect on the net as a whole is very localized. The problems has shown the distributed nature of the internet can shield the rest from the affected areas. Most places on earth has not seen any disruption at all from this DDoS.
But i agree, it is *rather* pointless and not very bright.
