Sorry for the off topic post, but has anyone dealt with Midco.net?
I recently reported a Scan from a node belonging there and have met with
nothing but side steps. Please contact me off list if you have any contacts there. Would like to get this resolved.
a) scans from all over are a fact of life on the internet.
b) harassing sources of scans and their upstreams is a DoS attack on
yourself. Send an email, and if you feel paranoid, filter.
Hmmm, so this is up there with SPAM right? do nothing about it cause its
just life. Thats just how Spam has gotta to be such a problem. No one
it because "its a fact of life", which is the reason why its now such a
Instead of reporting it and getting ISPs to enforce AUP/TOS the answer is to
just deal with it? lol, not.
After years working and dealing in this industry I'm not about to just give

Well enough said, just a little frustrated at this point, sorry all.

On your site you say your server functions to:
"resolve names for Rocknyou.com, log scans
and evil-do-ers attempting to breakin, and sometimes for fun I run
nmap <http://www.insecure.org/nmap/index.html> back at those bad nodes."
So since tonight is Halloween (GMT -6), would you prefer to be "Pot" or "Kettle?"
There are perfectly valid reasons to get scanned, especially by a well known white-hat tool like Nessus. Script-kiddies and spammers have much more robust/directed tools than a general purpose (slow) tool like Nessus.
And from the link you sent about Midco, it looks like they did a fine job responding to your request; probably better than most *SP's would do.
