The below email exchange may be of interest to some of you. The practical upshot is that it appears "the range was hijacked and should be included into the DROP list".

As an interesting aside, quoting a friend:

"the original company (that performed dangerous waste utilization) may have been a shady thing in and of itself (..) what most companies calling themselves "ecoservice" (with variations) do is take money for "safe utilisation" of hazardous waste, and then dump it in some old quarry out in the remote (or not so remote) corner of a forest or other natural area (..) they always have criminal links and protection from corrupts officials (often co-owners) and security/law enforcement services"

SPb (Sankt-Peterburg) is 1500 km from Novocherkassk.
parohod.biz also is in Sankt-Peterburg, they offer SEO (which I consider fraud,
spamming websites and search engines).

Note "bulletproof".

Therefore, the range was hijacked
and should be included into the DROP list.

It does not sound as though the original holders of the space know/care - if they are out of business, they probably don't care. If they are actively involved in it, then it's not a hijack. If they haven't updated their company name/website, then it's not a hijack, just poor record keeping.

If you suspect the address space is abandoned, or hijacked, report it to RIPE. It may not get deallocated and reassinged until a few months after the bill stops getting paid.


I was wondering if there is a repository with references of prefix hijack cases.
We would like to use such information for a BGP anomaly detection analysis that we are carrying out in our research centre.
Unfortunately, apart from the well known cases (Youtube-Pakistan case in 2008 and the China case in 2010, neither of which is an actual hijack, since they both took place due to misconfigurations and not due to malicious cyber attacks) there is lack of ground truth information that can be used for the validation of our techniques.

Thank you very much in advance,
