>As you may be aware from recent news reports, traffic to the
>youtube.com website was 'hijacked' on a global scale on Sunday, 24
>February 2008. The incident was a result of the unauthorised
>announcement of the prefix 184.108.40.206/24 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.
