Unless I'm misunderstanding something, I'm concerned regarding the IPv4 bogon list on . It clearly includes several /8's that should not be there. The data seems to be stale as if some job is no longer pulling the updated data. It states it's being pulled from , but that clearly does not contain 100/8, 5/8, 181/8, 49/8 and a few others... and hasn't for quite some time.
