Dear MaxMind Support,
your GeoLite ASN database  appears severely broken.
(probably by a recent code change on how AS names are collected)
Karsten Loesing from the Tor Project determined  that the amount of
records with nameless autonomous system entries in your DB increased
from ~500 (Feb 2016) to over 57000 in the current version (June 2016):
grep '"' -v GeoIPASNum2.csv |wc -l
but the actual root cause probably affects *all* entries in the database.
After investigating weird AS names in your DB called "73-75 Dr.
Staicovici" (AS8708) or "Warszawa 02-822" (AS12741), it appears as if
you are using the first "descr" line instead of the actual AS name.
AS Number: AS8708
AS Name according to MaxMind: "73-75 Dr. Staicovici"
actual AS Name according to : RCS & RDS SA
For more background see the Tor Project's bugtracker entry:
thank you for looking into this,
(I'm not a member of the Tor Project)
