Re: Packet Kiddies Invade NANOG

People should be worried about stuff like this. 
Banetele is a facilities-based network operator
in Norway and these guys are directly attacking
their BGP sessions to put them off the air.

Assuming that they are not sourcing the attacks
in Banetele's AS, then you, the peer of Banetele
are delivering the packet stream that kills the
BGP session. How long before peering agreements
require ACLs in border routers so that only BGP 
peering routers can source traffic destined to
your BGP speaking routers?

(08:48:02) <#sigdie!OseK_> i just collapsed banetele's BGP announcement
(08:48:43) <#sigdie!p> i dunno banetele looks dead
(08:48:48) <#sigdie!p> or maybe im just lagging
(08:49:00) <#sigdie!OseK_> ... BitchX: Sent server ping to 
(08:49:00) <#sigdie!OseK_> ... Server pong from 0.8224 
(08:49:12) <#sigdie!p> bash-2.05a$ 6667
(08:49:13) <#sigdie!p> Trying
(08:49:16) <#sigdie!OseK_> thats cuz I collapsed their BGP announcement by 

nailing their router head on(08:49:26) <#sigdie!OseK_> but they have a 
secondary route to efnet
(08:49:30) <#sigdie!_mre|42o> BGP announcement?
(08:49:31) <#sigdie!OseK_> thru their multihomed connection
(08:49:32) <#sigdie!OseK_> yeah
(08:49:37) <#sigdie!OseK_> they have a collapsable route
(08:49:44) <#sigdie!OseK_> using the border gateway protocl
(08:49:54) <#sigdie!OseK_> hey have to announce to a pool
(08:49:58) <#sigdie!OseK_> in order to establish their route
(08:50:07) <#sigdie!OseK_> but if thye get hit enough their router drops 
(08:50:10) <#sigdie!OseK_> and they lose their routes
(08:50:14) <#sigdie!OseK_> its wierd
(08:50:21) <#sigdie!OseK_> i dont quite understand how it works myself
