That was a different one, but I didn't have that data readily available. The cisco/bay bug I was thinking of was when Cisco's kept reseting all their BGP sessions when they saw a particular announcement from Bay routers. There are a whole bunch of interesting problems I remember, but can't find the date. There was the Sprint "0.0.0.0" route problem. There was the 129/8 which happened shortly after AS7007. There was an ANS bug in the ENSSs which knocked them out. I tried not to include "malicious" acts, such as DDOS since I think they should be considered separately. Although I recognize often the underlying cause of the security issue may be related to operational error or bugs.
