Report: Flaw could shut down Internet traffic

(CNN) -- Major companies and government agencies are scrambling to ensure they are not vulnerable to an Internet flaw that would allow attacks that could disrupt all communication. The Department of Homeland Security issued a Technical Cyber Security Alert Tuesday, warning that "sustained attacks" on routers between networks could lead to a "denial-of-service condition that could affect a large segment of the Internet community." Source: CNN According to an interview tonight on TSS from a security expert, this is a non issue. The routers have been patched by the time this story broke, according to him (I don't remember his name, and I already deleted the episode off of my DVR).
