BGPMON Alert Questions

We have a registered prefix that was affected. The RPKI may have helped
though; only one BGPMON peer saw the mis-originated route. Much better
than being on the 10+ list.

note joels careful use of 'injected'.  imiho, 'hijacked' is perjorative
implying evil intent.  i very much doubt that is the case here.  it
looks much more like an accident.  could we try to be less accusatory
with our language.  'injected', 'mis-originated', ... would seem to
descrive the situation.

and, btw, how many of those whose prefixes were mis-originated had
registered those prefixes in the rpki?
