Anonymous, the phantom hacker group responsible for headline-grabbing online protest actions, threatened to shut down the Internet on March 31st. They would use the nuclear option, a DNS amplification attack. The result would shut down email, corporate and government websites, communications and defense systems, banking and financial transactions, and electric grids and water systems around the world. It would be a global catastrophe.
Except it didn’t happen.
