    Many companies which provide various type of services which are depends on the internet have their own IP prefixes. They announces prefixes to the internet using BGP protocol and AS numbers.

    From the principle of BGP, it’s possible to break path to your servers if somebody announce same prefix as you. This is really big problem because your business is in risk. Communication is problematic and takes lot of time. Normaly, providers and peers should have configured some rules, filters and other types of security to prevent this.

    Using filters isn’t mandatory, so it can happen and it happened many times.

    Question is, what you should do to avoid this situation ?
