Register.com DNS Servers Down - DOS Attack

So maybe all the conficker hand-wringing wasn't an overreaction.... seem according to the twitters (11) register.com's dns servers are down due to a massive DOS attack.

So if you're website is down (like our companies is) or you're wondering why half the internet is dark, this may be the reason :) Some people are reporting it's back, but with sporadic response from their DNS servers.
