If the threats issued by Anonymous are to be believed, then Internet users, globally, should be prepared for this Saturday, the 31st of March, for it is on this day that Anonymous plans to take down the Internet, confirms a Pastebin post. Anonymous have drawn up a rough plan of how they plan to carry out this task. They plan to attack the 13 root DNS servers of the Internet. While there are plenty of DNS servers, all hosted by ISPs and organizations, they all are interconnected and everything roots from these 13 primary DNS servers. Anonymous sounds confident, so much so that they have even listed down the servers they plan on attacking. DNS servers are responsible for resolving domain names to IP address. Without any DNS servers functioning properly, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to access web sites by names.
