Re: Automated Network Abuse Reporting

try LogDog to act on the syslog sends all syslog log files through a 
pipe and scans for specific data...then you can email the complete message to 
anyone. It can have a negative performance impact depending on the number of 
sustained syslog logs being generated....but I used it on a system receiving 
syslog logs from over 200 routers and didn't see any issues. Of course 
syslog-ng can also do this....but I found logdog easier to implement. Not 
sure how you can automate the abuse email address?? You can specify a perl 
script from within the logdog conf file that could do a dig on the ip address 
from the source address...but that's just me thinking out loud. I think 
you'll find many programs out there that can do this...both commercial and 
opensource...but you'll need to do some customization.
