Reading the article, I assumed that perhaps Level 3 was an upstream
carrier, but RIPE stats shows that the covering prefix (22.214.171.124/22)
is announced by AS63509, an Indonesian organization. It looks like
they're fighting back by announcing their own /24 now.
I love the AS's address:
descr:Jl. Marcedes Bens No.258
descr:Gunung Putri, Bogor
descr:Jawa Barat 16964
While a Level 3 /24 announcement will certainly have a world wide
impact, I agree that it seems misguided when the originating AS can
announce their own /24. It does make one wonder why Cisco or Level 3 is
involved, why they feel they have the authority to hijack someone else's
IP space, and why they didn't go through law enforcement. This is
especially true for the second netblock (126.96.36.199/23), announced by
a US company (AS26484).
