AS3266: BitCanal hijack factory, courtesy of many connectivity providers


This is another chronic hijacker that is spoofing downstream ASNs and Prefixes.
They are currently hijacking 25 prefixes.  Mostly /18s,/19s and /20s.

Telcom Italia, Telia and Eurotrans Telecom are upstreams.
Of course people making money off of it aren't going to do anything about it.
Eurotrans Telecom has telia and tata as upstreams.
They are also peered with HE but HE doesn't appear to be accepting the hijacked routes.
Good for them.

I can confirm that this mornig (~09h30 CEST, when I read the first message in the thread) there were no BitCanal announces received from FranceIX Paris RS. Not even the ones with an IRR record (the ones in 213/8). All of them were from transit.
