Rutgers thrown into the stone age: no internet

Rutgers University says its latest Internet outage is from the same kind of "denial of service" attack that crippled campus computer systems earlier this month.

The Internet went down around 10 a.m. Monday on campus. Many online functions were still unavailable to students, faculty and university staff members as of Tuesday night.

University officials say they are trying to restore service.

Rutgers technicians had to restore Internet service following a cyberattack at the beginning of the month that began on a Friday. Service on and off campus was not completely restored until Tuesday.

The FBI is investigating the earlier incident.
