Has anyone forwarded their list of "attacking IPs by day" to any ISP?
My understanding is the ISPs can track IPs by day to accounts.
Unless and until people undertake a concerted effort to report the "attack" the ISPs will likely enjoy the luxury of doing nothing, at no risk.
Absent participation of the ISPs in slaying the zombie machines there appears to be no stopping this. So, the answer is to hold the ISPs to account.
Whilst your making your reports to the ISPs why not send a copy of your report/complaint to your legislative rep with a request that their staff draft legislation compelling ISPs to address the existance of zombies operating on their networks?
Honestly, this needs to be addressed before attacks within your nation, on your nation, begin to occur from zombie machines within the nation. Cybersecurity defense won't be a matter of severing outside the nation connections if this issue is allowed to run wild.
Maybe it will only take the threat of legislation or regulation for the ISPs to begin acting in a responsible, self-regulating, self-policing manner.
