>Dear Colleagues,
>As you may be aware from recent news reports, traffic to the 
> website was 'hijacked' on a global scale on Sunday, 24 
>February 2008. The incident was a result of the unauthorised 
>announcement of the prefix and caused the popular 
>video sharing website to become unreachable from most, if not all, 
>of the Internet.
>The RIPE NCC conducted an analysis into how this incident was seen 
>and tracked by the RIPE NCC's Routing Information Service (RIS) and 
>has published a case study at:
>The RIPE NCC RIS is a service that collects Border Gateway Protocol 
>(BGP) routing information from roughly 600 peers at 16 Internet 
>Exchange Points (IXPs) across the world. Data is stored in near 
>real-time and can be instantly queried by anyone to provide multiple 
>views of routing activity for any point in time.
>The RIS forms part of the RIPE NCC's suite of Information Services, 
>which together provide a deeper insight into the workings of the 
>Internet. The RIPE NCC is a neutral and impartial organisation, and 
>commercial interests therefore do not influence the data collected.
>The RIPE NCC Information Services suite also includes the Test 
>Traffic Measurement (TTM) service, the DNS Monitoring (DNSMON) 
>service and Hostcount. All of these services are available to 
>anyone, and most of them are offered free of charge.
