In the paper, we specifically mentioned that we used RRC00's data and all the BGP sessions at RRC00 used multi-hop peering. So what we concluded is that data from multi-hop peerings should be carefully sanitized to remove those BGP updates associated with the instability of the monitoring session (in this case, it was the session instability caused by the worm attack).
