BGP Incident:
Summary:Unauthorized L-root servers release bad routes
Start:2007-11-01 00:00:00

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) screwed up in November 2007 when it renumbered the DNS root server "L" that it operates. ICANN failed to notice several unauthorized L root servers operating across the Internet until six months later. By May 2008, ICANN had all the bogus L root servers turned off.
