|Summary:||Petersburg Internet Network IP-squatted|
A couple of weeks ago, the IP-squatters in Saint Petersburg, Russia hijacked routed address space of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), a popular target of theirs. Pictured below are the timelines of AS198596’s originations of 126.96.36.199/24 and 188.8.131.52/24, which are more-specific hijacks of 184.108.40.206/23 and 220.127.116.11/20, respectively — both normally originated by AS137 (GARR, the Italian Research & Education Network).
