Same here.. got a notice this morning and while it's false, I still have
no response from Randy neither on this matter...

If they are going to involve our AS numbers and trigger alarms it would
be nice to notify us first... especially on something as major as a
prefix hijacking (potentially)

I received a hijack notice that my AS (AS11708) was announcing the
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
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
      enough now

      More seriously, this is indeed reachability research.  Try
the AS 3130 contacts although I'd imagine Randy will see this.
