False Advertising

  • From: Ehud Gavron
  • Date: Thu Aug 01 16:24:38 1996

A customer of mine owns a cidr block they haven't been using.

They've asked me to advertise it.  I note that this block is
being advertised by an ALTERNET customer.

The nic / radb agree with my customer:
HEARTS:[GAVRON.INTERNET]_whois 204.193.128.0
B3 Corporation (NETBLK-B3NET-EC)
   2521 W. Arnold St.
   Marshfield, WI 54449

   Netname: B3NET-EC
   Netblock: 204.193.128.0 - 204.193.159.0

Note that the ``unscrupulous other isp'' has gotten inverse:
   Domain System inverse mapping provided by:

   NS.CYBERCONNECTION.COM       204.193.128.253

But the route is being annouced by ``cyberconnection'' out of AS701.

Ideas?  Should I just advertise this and to hell with the backbones?

Alternet?
