Given their track record, it does seem advisable to take the threat seriously, whatever taking it seriously might mean...


 If
i remember right, another group tried to take down the root servers within
the past 5 or 6 years and only took out around 20 or 25.

Some discussions about that I recall guessed that it was an experimental probe, for learning how to do a better attack. (Remember that 9/11 was a revision of a prior attack on the towers.)
