Ok, our network has just been getting flooded with http requests from some APNIC controlled network.
I've tried sending abuse reports to every email address I can find that whois.net returns, but nothing seems to be stopping this.
Of course I've got the IP's blocked but just the incoming requests are enough to slow down our internet pipe and it's starting to take it's tole one our websites performance.
I've contact our ISP but they say they don't block upstream traffic.
What the heck can I do?!?
The IP's that are flooding us are:
Anybody got any recommendations? This is really starting to P'ss me off!!!! I'm about ready to start calling the phone numbers listed by whois and rip into these people!!

Your response to the attack (possibly your scan) raised a flag that the network on this IP is "Alive" and you got listed in an attacking/scanning bot , possibly.
The easiest way to get rid of them , is to set your Router or Firewall to drop ICMP requests (echo off) which will turn your IP as "non-active" in your ISP's subnet.
So if this bot is scanning a subnet range , your IP will remain hidden and all attempts to connect/scan it, will be dropped from the other side.
If it remains there , then another thing you can do is to ask your ISP to change IP (if it is a static one).
