Maybe downing a few of the important routers such as mae-east and mae-west.
Maybe cutting several of the key fiber-optic cables, as is occasionally done by construction crews by accident, just not all at
I suppose it would be hard to down the whole net, but is certainly could be crippled and sections of it could be downed with enough
I think it was the code-red thing several months ago that did a pretty good job of wide-spread DOS, although I don't think that was
it's intent and that didn't involve doing anything physical.
