Note that there was an article in the Internet tabloid:


The "explanations" mix up DNS with BGP! "for example, if a network is
tricked into advertising itself as the whole of the Internet, it can
be hosed, or if the wrong network promises it's the best way to reach
YouTube, then YouTube is blackholed." All this with PowerDNS :-)
