I'm fond of getting the issues addressed by getting the ISPs to be involved
with the problem.   If that means users get charged "clean up" fees instead
of a "security" fee, that's fine.

ISPs remain in the unique position of being able to identify the customer,
the machine, and to verify the traffic.  It can be done.
