Gee, wouldnt that be nice. Having personally dealt with one that had ~ 500 hosts involved on several dozen networks, I can confirm that of all the repeated pleas for help to said networks to track down the controlling party, I had a grand total of ONE (yes, 1 as in one above zero) who actually responded with a response beyond the auto-responders.... And that was to let me know that the user in question had already formatted their hard drive before the admin could see what was on the machine and who might have been controlling the machine.

It took several _weeks_ for all the attacking hosts to be killed off with several reminder messages to various networks. So I dont hold much optimism for actually tracking down the actual attacker.


terminated.  It's a bit harder to trace than PSTN (or other netowrks)
but I feel of value to do so.
