Based on this answer from 2014, bitcoin nodes are vulnerable to BGP hijacking. There was an incident today in which twitter prefix was hijacked and details are shared in 2 blog posts:

nusenu had written an article about Tor network being vulnerable to BGP hijacking attacks: https://nusenu.medium.com/how-vulnerable-is-the-tor-network-to-bgp-hijacking-attacks-56d3b2ebfd92

Tor-BGP

After doing some research I found that RPKI ROA and BGP prefix length can help against BGP hijacking attacks. I checked BGP prefix length and RPKI ROA for first 10 ip addresses returned in getnodeaddresses and it had vulnerable results.

Has any bitcoin developer written a detailed blog post or research article like nusenu?
