I am not sure it will take any major coordinated effort. For many outbreak
incidents, the CDC would respond in the U.S., other agencies would respond

Coincidentally enough, just posted an article "Your PC could be a

The provider mentioned appears to be turning off customers [unwittingly]
involved in abuse without any major coordinated effort behind them. (And I
am sure there other examples of providers taking such action.)
