This is no problem, but the whole thing (blocking nimda "attacks" to your
linux box) is really useless, as many have non-static ip-adresses and you
will soon have a huge blocking table, which results in poor performance.
If you have really too much entries in your logs (filling up the disks),
clean them with a script that removes all those entries or contact the
provider of the infected hosts.
Blocking of huge address ranges doesn't solve any problems.
