Cool!  I love it when we find these things out from
external sources.  :(  :(

I'll put a bee in the bonnet of the folks at work to
track this down and get it operational again.

If you are a peer of ours, please send correspondance to
"[email protected]" -- that actually hits the clueful
people.  If for some reason that address gives errors, send
it to "[email protected]".  That second address isn't
supposed to exist anymore, of course, but it's always good
to have a second channel in case the primary fails.  :)

How does one do that...I see a form for adding a new entry,
but I don't see a form for updating an existing entry.  :(

Please send as much of the relevant information on the attack
as you can to [email protected], and we will work with
you on tracking it down.  Please include which peering location
you are seeing the traffic from, and destination IPs that are
being hit.

You're welcome--sorry it had to come to a public forum like this.  :(
