A good intro to these problems can be found in Jeremy Rauch's blackhat
presentation about that stuff. It's on blackhat.com under speakers.
It can be found at:
And scroll down to Jeremy's talk.
I recommend reading Internet Routing Architectures and learning
about it. I would say that the reason so much of the Internet is vulnerable
to attacks against the routing infrastructure is because people have been
treating it like voodoo.
If you are worried about Breaking The Internet while learning about routing,
I can assure you, the most cataclysmic routing disasters were caused by
people that insisted they knew what they were doing.
Your cautiousness is welcome.
