Looks like 12956 is announcing some /8s to every peer and transit. Worse 
still, Sprint and GX are propagating it. This is not the first time that 
Telefonica has leaked a lot of garbage routes with serious network impact 
as a result (nor is it the second or third, actually).

12.0.0.0/8
64.0.0.0/8
65.0.0.0/8 

I'd say both GX and Sprint have a lot to answer for right about now.
