You shut the mal-administered systems of from the internet until they
are no lnger a threat to the internet, just as you quarantine ill
persons who are dangers to the community.  Solving the spam and security
problems requires nothing more, and nothing less.  

The identities of chronically mal-administered systems are well

There are some practical implementation problems at the margin but
for (I am guessing) 95% of the cases, it is trivially easy.
