Hello,

As several people have already observed here, AS 16735 announced 
almost the whole Internet last night to two of its peers (AS 27664, 
174213 routes and AS 22548, 111231 routes).  These routes were not 
propagated to the global Internet--and as Frederico A C Neves has 
confirmed, it was a localized event.

For more detail on what happened, see Frederico's post [0] and the 
BGPMon site's summary [1].  We also have a slightly more detailed 
analysis here [2].

- -Martin
