Hi Nick,

Thanks for the link, we use Quagga within Vyatta for route-refelctors and this sent us into routing hell from 10PM QLD time onwards.

Took us about an hour to figure out that it wasn't a deliberate network attack, that it must be a 4-byte issue then we started to figure out a work around.

Good luck to anyone else affected.

Morning All,

Quagga users need to take a look at mailing list post 
http://lists.quagga.net/pipermail/quagga-users/2009-April/010581.html in 
regards to bgpd crashes as a result of 4 Byte ASN issues.

Despite the post advising the issue becoming apparent on April 30, this 
has not only affected ourselves, but we know a number of other parties 
over the last 6 hours, causing significant hell. A patch is available 
from the above post.
