Fully peered network A accepts routes from its peers based on prefix
allocation to AS maps.
Network B, which is either pathological (criminal, or bent on
censorship) or lacking clue, propagates /24 subnet of Network C's CIDR
If network A accepts Network B's announcement, then connectivity from
network A to the /24 announced by Network B (which isn't really
connected to network B) is either lost, or worse, hijacked.
