Point taken and agreed with, however I think the differentiating terms here are "Malicious Hosting Providers."
According to my logs, an increasing amount of "malicious" activity comes from China IPs, just not traceable to "hosting providers." Most of these bad agents show as Chinanet or gov't owned properties. The lack of transparency is the real issue, so the entire country of China may be getting the blame.
In other parts of the world bad activity can be traced to individual companies & hosting providers.
I continue to block every China IP range I know of. Makes my job so much easier.
