I'm pretty sure that is the version that filters >=207 at /19 (instead
of /18 which is where he initially put the filter). However, keep in
mind that the registries have been allocating space out of old class A
space, which all versions of his filter I've seen _will_ block. So,
depending on your policy you would want to add:

access-list xxx permit ip

Do that for 24/8, 62/8 and any other blocks that the IANA has released
to a registry (I think Dorian mentioned 63/8 and 64/8 as well). Of
course, if you want to filter on /19 then your mask will be a little

Of course, one can just do what Randy suggested and filter all class A
space at /19 and be done with it.
