Attack traffic towards K-root DNS service

 K-root DNS servers worldwide have been experiencing an unusually high load of incoming packets between 25 June 2016 22:00 UTC and 26 June 00:45 UTC. RIPE NCC staff implemented countermeasures which helped to keep the impact of this event limited, however, the attack traffic will have affected some genuine queries.
