URGENT: ns.internic.net blown

Can somebody get in touch with the right people? ns.internic.net
has blown 194.in-addr.arpa . Can't get anybody on the telephone.

have you recently reassigned via swip? There was a swip bug that
blew away the total registration record for a CIDR block when the zero net
was reassigned. I have suffered the consequence of this with two of my
cidr blocks. With one it took over 3 weeks for them to fix. Not good....


It just recently happened to two of our networks as well (last week). I don't
remember being warned about this, yet it has happened to several providers so


It's a little worse than that in this case; 194 isn't a provider
block, it's one of the two superblocks in Europe, delegated to the
RIPE NCC (the other one is 193).

The bogus info is actually in the zone files themselves, according
to Lars-Johan Liman at KTH in Sweden (they run nic.nordu.net, one
of the root servers). This means that all root servers will be
infected -- I just checked three, and yep, sure enough.

Those root operators reading this, please consider fixing the zone
file; the correct data is
