NPR's John McChesney reports that for the third consecutive day, computer hackers slowed down or shut down some of the biggest Internet Web sites. E-Trade and ZDNet were affected yesterday. On Monday and Tuesday it was Yahoo, Amazon.com and CNN.com. Internet security experts and commercial Web site companies say such attacks are to be expected and won't significantly affect online commerce. The perpetrators remain unknown.
