Minor apologies to GX, it looks like Telefonica isn't a customer any more,
just a direct peer. I'm still annoyed from the last outage caused when
Telefonica leaked routes to GX as a transit customer. Sprint on the other
hand propagated this as full transit. I'm glad to see no one has learned
from AS7007. :)
As for how to prevent this from happening again... I know many people who
aren't able to implement full peer filtering are at least enforcing simple
as-path checks on the largest ASNs (making sure that customers and peers
don't reannounce paths which have 7018 in them, for example), but it
doesn't look like anyone is trying to filter things on a largest prefix
basis. When AS26210 decides to start originating the prefixes themselves
instead of just leaking it from 7018, boom.
