A call to AT&T Worldnet confirms that AT&T Worldnet service is blocking ICMP in
order to deal with an undefined emergency. Nothing posted on their site, nor
any other info is available. If anyone has info related to this "icmp outage",
please advise. Thanks!

They're probably being pinged to death, or trying to contain the damage...
