Re: BGP to doom us all

Hi, Dean.

] Assuming the router is compromised, so is the MD5 key.  And presumably,
] the acls and anything else can be changed as well.

Agreed.  My point was to take a few steps to avoid the compromise.  :)
It isn't difficult to make things just a *bit* more difficult, and thus
avoid the pain caused by the average scan and sploit crowd.  Pick good
passwords, limit access, keep routing tables clean, etc.

Thanks,
Rob.
