>From where I'm standing this situation looks much more serious than
the last one.  It looks like Con Edison (AS27506) hijacked several
prefixes other than just Panix's, and I'm not sure that they're done
announcing them yet.  I see ~70 new prefixes, many of whom are
customers of Con Edison, but about 25 of these appear to have no
previous relationship to 27506).

I won't bore people with to many details here (unless there is great
interest) but a quick, rough-n-ready analysis is up at

http://www.renesys.com/blog/2006/01/coned_steals_the_net.shtml

for those that are curious.  (For those that don't want to read it, I
think one main punchline is that Con Edison spewed a bunch of routes
they didn't own and UUNet and Verio believed them).  

Please let me know if you see errors in there.
