Do you recommend that we use a DNS blacklist to check every SSH and
HTTPS connection attempt, about whether it should be filtered or not?

Ultimately if there is scanning happening from an IP address delegated
to someone, isn't their [email protected] responsible for handling the complaints?
What are "real" issues?

We have scanning happening on ssh, https, SIP, SMTP submission ports
everyday. fail2ban does a good job blocking many of these, but
ultimately should the scanning problem be ignored?  Is nobody ultimately
responsible to stop these hosts from scanning?
