if said administrators also went over the logs andtracked down the isp's 
for the servers infected with server based virus, then reported to the 
isp in question there would be a lot less of them out there.
I did with my own isp, since a significant number of thier ip's are 
infected, they are getting on the cases of the admins responsible.

also, reporting hacking attempts to the isp for the hacker will stop 
that from happening, since the isp will close account on them. ( someone 
tried to hack my wife's computer, the apache log showed it nicely. only 
took 24 hours for the isp to shut the person down. )
