This may not be the best solution pertaining to this particular thread, but the following site may be of use for this kind of a thing. I would recommend anyone managing a firewall to at least check it out, as it is a great resource: If you wanted to perhaps ban the most popular (not to mention annoying) script kiddies (or ban and not log), you could write some form of a script that could just grab and parse one of these feeds: Then add some rules to your firewall, using whatever means necessary.
