Seeing it here too. On our 4-byte capable routers:

91.196.186.0/24    *[BGP/170] 1d 13:36:53, MED 0, localpref 105, from 193.75.0.204
                      AS path: 16150 15703 43531 AS_TRANS I
                      AS path: 3356 6461 15703 43531 AS_TRANS I
                      AS path: 1299 3549 15703 43531 AS_TRANS I

And on our non 4-byte capable routers it is simply shown as 23456. This
ASN should not be used to originate prefixes, agreed.
