Here's a quote from this story
http://www.techweb.com/wire/story/TWB19980220S0001

   Both Bellovin and his AT&T colleague Matt Blaze cited the vulnerability
   of the Net's decentralized routing system, ....  This routing
   information has been accidentally corrupted several times, they said,
   resulting in massive traffic flows being rerouted through single slow
   machines or blocked altogether.

   They said a hacker could also cause this kind of corruption.
