RE: [suse-security] after ip ....
every ISP has an abuse@xxxxxxxx email address.

This is the only real way to get something done although in truth it will
depend on the nature of the offence. Many ISP's don't have the man power to
chase down offenders and many (especially when it is a dial up port) will
not be helpful in determining who the offending user is.

Many ISP's will blackhole IP addresses that continuously offend, so it would
be a good idea to get hold of your own ISP and complain so that you do not
waste your local loop bandwidth to deliver packets to /dev/null
