It looks like Con Edison (AS27506) hijacked several prefixes other than just Panix's, and I'm not sure that they're done announcing them yet. I see ~70 new prefixes, many of whom are customers of Con Edison, but about 25 of these appear to have no previous relationship to 27506). I won't bore people with to many details here (unless there is great interest) but a quick, rough-n-ready analysis is up at http://www.renesys.com/blog/2006/01/coned_steals_the_net.shtml for those that are curious. (For those that don't want to read it, I think one main punchline is that Con Edison spewed a bunch of routes they didn't own and UUNet and Verio believed them). Please let me know if you see errors in there. t. -- _____________________________________________________________________ todd underwood chief of operations & security renesys - internet intelligence email@example.com www.renesys.com
