from Wired: Threat Level by Kevin Poulsen
Deliberate sabotage is being blamed for a sizable internet and telephone service outage Thursday in Silicon Valley.
At 1:30 a.m., someone opened a manhole cover on a railroad right-of-way in San Jose, climbed down and cut four AT&T fiber optic cables. A second AT&T cable, and a Sprint cable, were cut in the same manner two hours later, farther north in San Carlos.
