Hi, team.

[ Apologies to those who have received this post in other fora. ]

The numerous Team Cymru bogon projects have been updated to reflect the
following IANA allocations on November 15, 2003:

83/8   Nov 03   RIPE NCC
84/8   Nov 03   RIPE NCC

IANA allocations change over time, so please check regularly to ensure
you have the latest filters if you are not using the bogon BGP feed(s).
We do announce updates to the bogon projects to the FIRST community, as
well as on lists such as NANOG, isp-routing, isp-security, isp-bgp,
cisco-nsp, and bogon-announce.  We can not stress this point strongly
enough - these allocations change. If you do not adjust your filters,
you will be unable to access perhaps large portions of the Internet.
Worse yet, you may end up blocking access for people who transit through

Please do not blindly apply any filters or blocks to your network
without carefully considering the ramifications of doing so.

As a point of reference, the master Bogon Reference Page can be found

include the following:
