Two (of three) of the PK servers are in the US (in AS701). If the
attacks were happening due to some generally-distributed windows worm,
and were targetting the PK servers with any degree of ferocity, you'd
think this would be more than just a South Asian problem.
It's possible, of course, that the extremely different scales of
infrastructure deployment in South Asia compared with the 701 backbone
could cause the same attack traffic to be highly disruptive to the
former, and yet barely noticable by the latter.
