Internet & Networking Hackers Crackers have attempted to topple key parts of the internet's backbone, in one of the most significant attacks of recent years. The target was servers that help to direct global internet traffic. In the early hours of Tuesday three key servers were hit by a barrage of data in what is known as a distributed denial-of-service attack. There is no evidence so far of damage, which experts are saying is testament to the robust nature of the internet.

Time to implement some P2P protocol for vital network parts lol.

And a cracker is a hacker, though a "bad" one. If u feel about mixing those two words, you still have to explain it _every_ time over and over again.
