Noticing many DNS issues today. Is it the war?

Today zoneedit is experiencing a Denial of Service attack on their nameservers. Zoneedit says they are being hit by a large number of "spoofed packets".

And, I notice that dotster is currently down. I don't know if thier issue is the same, but I do know that they offer nameserver services.

Are these isolated cases? Are people seeing other similar issues?

I know that AlJezeera has been attacked in a similar way to the attack on zoneedit in the last couple of days. Is this related?
