Indosat AS4761 hijacked 400k+ prefixes on April 2, 2014
Indosat, AS4761, one of Indonesia’s largest telecommunication networks normally originates about 300 prefixes. Starting at 18:26 UTC (April 2, 2014) AS4761 began to originate 417,038 new prefixes normally announced by other Autonomous Systems such as yours. The ‘mis-origination’ event by Indosat lasted for several hours affecting different prefixes at different times until approximately 21:15 UTC.
It appears our AS was affected as well (between 19:33 and 20:23), but I am a bit suspicious as I cannot corroborate this info with other sources than bgpmon.net
Any reference I find traces back to bgpmon. (and I cannot read Indonesian).
Perhaps @Stephane Bortzmeyer has an opinion on this ?
Autres sources que découlant de bgpmon ?
paranoïa über alles : from the bgpmon service:
Users with a premium account also have access to all the individual BGP updates as well as the full AS path. This will tell you in detail what networks selected this bad route and the exact timestamps. Some of you also received a phone call to inform you of the events immideatly after detection (part of the Enterprise add-on).
