’Grand theft internet’; Googles web traffic hijacked and routed through Russia and China

People’s connections in the US to Google – including its cloud, YouTube, and other websites – were suddenly rerouted through Russia and into China in a textbook Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) hijack.

That means folks in Texas, California, Ohio, and so on, firing up their browsers and software to connect to Google and its services were instead meandering through systems in Russia and China, and not reaching servers belonging to the Silicon Valley giant. Netizens outside of America may also have been affected.
