If I'm not mistaken, that was ORBS.

Correct. A particularly interesting case, since ORBS' transit provider was also a transit customer of Said transit provider would announce their /16s, of which ORBS sat in a /24 or two of, and have their traffic blackholed.

IIRC they punched /24s via their other transit providers to partly resolve the issue.

But the rest of the story - let's not go there.
