    "Global Internet Outage Over Next 48 Hours Could Affect Some Users, According To ICANN

    ICANN has scheduled the Root Zone Key Signing Key (KSK) Rollover for today, and it could affect some DNS users all over the world.

    By Rolling the KSK, ICANN implies that a new cryptographic public and private key pair will be generated and the private key will be distributed to internet service providers, enterprise network administrators, and Domain Name System (DNS) resolver operators...

    In an official statement, Communications Regulatory Authority said: 'To further clarify, some internet users might be affected if their network operators or Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have not prepared for this change. However, this impact can be avoided by enabling the appropriate system security extensions.'

    Due to the ongoing maintenance work, some internet users could face issues in accessing web pages or making transactions over the next 48 hours."

    Clickbait Version:

    "Global internet shutdown likely over next 48 hours

    Internet users across the globe may experience widespread network failures as the key domain servers are slated to undergo routine maintenance over the next 48 hours..."
