The Curious Incident of 7th Nov 2011

Rajeev Meharwal, Renesys Corp

On 7 November 2011 at 14:13 UTC, large swaths of the Internet became unstable or disappeared entirely for upwards of an hour. The US, Ukraine, Russia and India were some of the most impacted countries, while Level 3, Tata, and Telia were some of the most affected global providers. That day, Juniper issued an advisory that stated some of their routers "may crash upon receipt of very specific and unlikely route prefix install/delete actions, such as a BGP routing update". After we present our analysis of the impact of the event, we also provide our evidence that the ""bad"" update originated from an ISP in India, spreading from there to Tata and Level 3. For completeness, we review similar events where "odd" AS paths or "bad" attributes have tickled bugs in other vendor's products, resulting in similar partial Internet meltdowns.
