Dear colleagues,

In this article Vasileios Giotsas summarises the results of a detailed
study of how transferred IPv4 prefixes are misused in the wild by
synthesising an array of longitudinal IP blacklists, honeypot data, and
AS reputation lists:

This research was supported by the RIPE NCC Projects Fund.

Kind regards,

an interesting read, and looks to be a solid analysis.  as a researcher,
i like it a lot.  as an operator, i am not sure what the heck we can do
about it.
