According to Bruce Schneier (a highly respected cryptographer) there is (likely) a nation state trying to learn how to take down the internet. This is just the latest event in a multi-year chain of ever more sophisticated attacks.

I doubt this is Russia, too bold. They take the leaking info to 3rd parties route. I bet money this is either China or NORTH Korea reacting to Kerry's latest remarks

Adding this entry to the windows hosts file should work, right?
Might compile a list of IPs if so.

you should change your dns long before you get to the point of writing down actual addresses
