Here we are, over a week after this being pointed out on the NANOG list,
 and Cogent continues to let them advertise this netblock illegally.
 Since they are incapable of filtering themselves, could someone from
MFN (their upstream) step up to the plate and put down some prefix-lists
or null routes or them?   Any Cogent peers reading this list?

Or maybe AS 8143 has no connection to Advisetech at all.  In today's
global economy, it's common to have an ASN from a defunct company in
Florida, and IP space from Lucent Technologies, Mansfield MA, a PO box
in ZA, a company with IP's in New York but a domain in Beverly Hills,
 VE, and HT all routed to servers in NYC (do a traceroute).  What's a
few million SMTP connections between friends?

Yeah, hats off to XO's abuse department.  Keep up the good work guys.
