ip blocking is futile. You need to block the keywords.
If using linux you can install mod security. Out of the box it will block many things. When new exploits appear you just need to add new rules.
e.g. if you don't run phpgroupware and want to block whenever anyone tries to access that file:
SecRule REQUEST_URI "phpgroupware" "log,drop,phase:1"
That will drop the packet but you can also add the ip to iptables and ban the ip for an hour, day, week, alltime.
