Hello all, <I work for LACNIC> I will report the issue with the WHOIS data for this block to our WHOIS maintenance team. On the other hand, I am currently doing some research work into hijackings, and while I expect to present more detailed results in a month or so, this ASN from an organization named Telematika consistently appears in the hijacking cases I've been able to identify so far. Even more, Telematika has announced the whole of 191/8 several times during the past months. 191/8 is a ERX block that was assigned to LACNIC when the ERX space was returned/given to the RIRs. It's not being currently used for *any* purpose, it's in reserve and it should not appear in any routing table. So, in short, yes, the Telematika guys are up to no good. My evil twin would just filter their whole ASN out, but maybe the responsible thing to do first would be contacting them.
