The root servers weren't down. The effect of the SQL Slammer/ Sapphire worm was an unintentional DoS. The pipes were filled up with crap.

Subtle distinction I know, but hey, we're all techies here, right?

DoS'ing the Root servers was, in my opinion, unintentional.

I think the perpetrator was attempting to exploit MS SQL servers. The fact that they wrote such a crappy worm that filled the pipes of the net with its vomit was largely unintentional.

Look at the worm that Robert Morris Jr. wrote in the late 80's - early 90's. The only reason it DoS'ed anything is because he had a typo in the algorithmthat he wrote for replication.
