Happy New Year all,

I'm curious if anyone can answer whether there has been any traction
made relative to blocking egress traffic (via BGP) on US backbones which
is destined to IP addresses used for fraudulent purposes, such as
phishing sites.  

I'm sure there are several challenges to implementing this...
