    Yes. There was a hacking attempt to shut down the entire WWW. It failed, the internet's security is as strong as was hoped. Maybe you should google this before you say it never happened.
    I don't know about WoW, but a video game is an extremely insignificant part of the hack, if it was done. WoW, along with all the other video games, would crash along with the WWW.

    Shutting down the entire Internet is a hard impossible thing. You can try, but you'll fail miserably

    Shutting down WoW though I don't see happening. Its only a single MMORPG in the great sea of MMORPGs out there. Someone could concievably shut down WoW, but Vivendi would get their legal team on it and that person would be horribly arrested

    People seem to think that the Off-Topic forum is simply a spam forum...

    That's kind of the point of doing it right, isn't it?

    Actually, the funny thing is that a Nuclear strike that could wipe out Humankind, would not shut down the internet. The only way to do it is internally.

    And powerouts wouldn't do it, since the satellites would remain running.

    Probably Bill Gates being jealous of WOW and certain other, and wanted to convince them to buy more of his stuff ^^ Either that or he demonstrated Vista on an older machine and activated a fatal system shutdown loop in the process of the new red screen of death.

    mmm I'm sorry to say you can't just shutdown the internet like that...its not like there is just one big master switch you can click off. basicly every server that exist makes up the internet why some servers make up a bigger chunk in the end they all combine and thats what the internet is. Basicly it takes months for a decent hacker to hack ONE server or a set of servers imagine trying to hack millions of servers all with diffrent anti-hack software. As for WoW....who cares?

    Except, you're wrong. That's not how it works. It's dependent on 13 servers, that route the entire internet. These hackers took out 7 of said servers.

    And no, they weren't doing this from one station. They have been working with Trojan Viruses for several years, to create "Zombie Computers," which run normally except when the hackers tell them to do something via the Trojan. So, while they're waiting for their commands to send packets and such, they'll be uploading spyware or spambotting websites and forums, etc.

    mmm dude http://computer.howstuffworks.com/internet-infrastructure.htm?

    so if im wrong your saying there are these 13 servers that are basicly recieving and sending millions and millions of prabaly terabytes of info and handling it smoothly? im sorry to say but that would require maintence and I don't believe I found the internet "shutdown" for that reason lol. trust me dude 13 servers running the entire internet is one impossible idea.

    Alright, I understand now. You're clearly right, just because you're that clever.

    >your saying there are these 13 servers that are basicly recieving and sending millions and millions of prabaly terabytes of info and handling it smoothly?

    No.. that's not what I said. You assumed that.

    That link is completely irrelevant, considering I wasn't talking about the way you connect to the internet. There are 13 supporting servers that are 'holding up' the internet. Yes, you use other computer and website hosts to connect to other websites and computers, that's why it run smoothly. The point is, if you shut down the 13 servers, the internet would no longer work.
