Fri Jul 18 17:02:52 PDT 1997 — A number of bad things are happening out there in Internet land. UUNet’s fiber carrier has had a large trunk cut in Wisconson, and this is affecting much of UUNet’s non Bay Area destinations. We’ve been noticing slow access and lots of packet loss. In addition, our network is currently under attack, apparently from another UUNet customer. We’ve blocked access from their network, and we’re working with UUNet security to isolate the source of the attack.
