Only if it impacts the ISP, which it doesn't most of the time unless
they buy an unfortunate brand of dial-up concentrators.
If you don't want to download patches from Microsoft, and don't want to
pay McAfee, Symantec, etc for anti-virus software; should ISPs start
charging people clean up fees when their computers get infected?
Would you pay an extra $50/Mb a month for your ISP to operate a
No way. They have no business even looking at my traffic, let alone
and scan your traffic for you?
What would be great though is a system where there is an automatic
check to see if there is any return traffic for what a customer sends
out. If someone keeps sending traffic to the same destination without
anything coming back, 99% chance that this is a denial of service
attack. If someone sends traffic to very many destinations and in more
than 50 or 75 % of the cases nothing comes back or just an ICMP port
unreachable or TCP RST, 99% chance that this is a scan of some sort.
