HIJACKED: 148.163.0.0/16 -- WTF? Level3 is now doing IP hijacking??

I have a level 3 circuit with BGP. Level 3 set me up a maintainer. To
communicate with this program I just send an email to the maintainer, based
on my email address and the maintainer name it will allow the route I
request advertisement. I don't believe any one monitors this system and I
would imagine if no one complains about this company advertising hijacked
routes to level 3 then it would be quite easy to advertise a network that
has been abandon.

And have you reported this to ARIN?

Obviously it's not fraud on Celanese's part, but it certainly seems to be
evidence that they don't need the space anymore.  If someone who needed it
more had it, they might not put up with the hijacking.
