At this time I am receiving a ton of bogus routes originating from AS701.  This
AS has hijacked all the /24 subnets of 128.1 through 128.1xx.  Since the more
specific route prevails in the cidr world they have managed to wipe out my
network not to mention a hundred other 128.x networks.

This is not good.

The third hand story I got from their hotline was that a core route crashed
causing other core routers to crash.  This doesn't explain anything to me.
Are they using Ascend Giga routers in their core?
