May I take this opportunity to suggest that you (& anyone else listening that doesn't already have two levels of prevention on their BGP customers)
implement a BGP max-prefix setting on your customer peer-groups to prevent this sort of incident in the future (in addition to using per-customer prefix filters)?

Plenty of networks are rolling out IPv6; <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_Public_Key_Infrastructure">RPKI</A> may take longer...
