    a nice rundown on various BGP attacks and their impacts on endpoints (and by extension applications). the interesting thing here personally was the run down on attacks against BTC infrastructure. the punchline, however, seems to be you can’t trust the underlay (read, the Internet). for some stuff, particularly in a world of well funded state actors, you’re likely going to need to create an application level overlay network.
