Interesting. I was looking into the BGP a few years back and I think we realized that that system would allow for massive hacks. It’s an ancient system that is poorly protected yet at the core of everything…

So it could be this was a mistake as they claim.

Or it would also be the first vector of attack a serious actor would use.

It’s exactly like this picture if the internet is a castle with many locks gates and controls then the BGP is the back door that someone left open.
