Hello, 


Anyone here from Vodafone India (and/or their upstream Airtel AS9498). 
Seems like Vodafone AS55410 (likely accidentally) hijacked a Brazilian pool 24.152.117.0/24

It was visible on RIPE RIS rrc05.ripe.net at VIX, Vienna. 

Raw MRT dump show this:

So besides Vodafone AS55410 hijacking it, seems like Airtel AS9498 carried it to AS6461 i.e upto default free zone. If not an hijack, then they should get the IRR route object updated (which right now shows AS270497 in origin).
