    BBC: Global internet slows after 'biggest attack in history'

    Your excuse for the day: BBC News - Global internet slows after 'biggest attack in history'

    The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack in history.A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks flooding core infrastructure.
    It is having an impact on widely used services like Netflix - and experts worry it could escalate to affect banking and email services.
    Five national cyber-police-forces are investigating the attacks.
    Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content.
