[liberationtech] Renesys: Syrian Internet Is Off The Air

Note the following in the Renesys post:
http://www.renesys.com/blog/2012/11/syria-off-the-air.shtml

"Now, there are a few Syrian networks that are still connected to the
Internet, still reachable by traceroutes, and indeed still hosting Syrian
content. These are five networks that use Syrian-registered IP space, but
the originator of the routes is actually Tata Communications. These are
potentially offshore, rather than domestic, and perhaps not subject to
whatever killswitch was thrown today within Syria.

These five offshore survivors include the webservers that were implicated
in the delivery of
malware<https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/05/fake-skype-encryption-tool-targeted-syrian-activists-promises-security-delivers>targeting
Syrian activists in May of this year."
