I just tried to go to the Newell Website and couldn't get there. I got the Internet Explorer cannot display message. Could this be part of the cyber attack I just saw a message about?

there were a number of websites that I couldn't get into. I am able to get into all of them now.
During this process I up-graded Internet Explorer to the newer version. The problem is that it deleted my older Yahoo Verizon Browser? anyway the computer is working faster now but I need to learn my way around the newer Broswers (I also downloaded firefox). But I am having trouble accessing spell check at this forum.

There was a cyber attack during the past 48 hours that flooded a number of sites with hits. Most of these were government sites (primarily U.S. and South Korea) but it certainly increased the traffic on the internet reducing available bandwidth.
