NSI bulletin 097-004 | Root Server Problems

On Wednesday night, July 16, during the computer-generation of the
Internet top-level domain zone files, an Ingres database failure resulted 
in corrupt .COM and .NET zone files.  Despite alarms raised by Network 
Solutions' quality assurance schemes, at approximately 2:30 a.m. (Eastern 
Time), a system administrator released the zone file without regenerating the
file and verifying its integrity.  Network Solutions corrected the
problem and reissued the zone file by 6:30 a.m. (Eastern Time).  

Thank you.
