I'm not entirely certain what is going on but has anyone noticed some
strange announcements for 184.108.40.206/24?
I received a hijack notice that my AS (AS11708) was announcing the above
IP range. I verified that I was not when I started noticing some
strange announcements for that range. Around 10 Am CST AS11911 was
announcing it (AS_PATH: 1239 2914 3130 11911) then around 11:30 AM CST
I observed AS12083 announcing it (AS_PATH: 1239 2914 3130 12083).
Interestingly enough, ARIN indicates this is a part of range they have
assigned for reachability testing.
randy lied but
no packets died
More seriously, this is indeed reachability research. Try emailing
the AS 3130 contacts although I'd imagine Randy will see this.
