Global internet shutdown- brace yourselves!

Global internet shutdown over the next 48 hours? Now how would that be? Peaceful or cumbersome- you decide. But the buzz is that due to a routine maintenance of servers schedule the connectivity might remain affected over the next said hours. 

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is set to change the cryptographic key which protects the DNS(Domain Name System). This organization is responsible for maintaining the registry of domain names and IP addresses. 

But here’s the catch: you can avoid this if necessary security extensions of the system are enabled. So brace yourselves, netizens!
