I'd hold a very public discussion on the matter.

If their people are intentionally trying to hack your network, they're 
probably using proprietary information in violation of some NDAs.

It's also indicative of a larger problem.

If their servers are compromised and are being remotely abused by a third 
party, that's something their clients need to know.

If it's a spoof, that should also be publicly exposed and addressed.
