actually, if you check the agreement with your isp, you will find a line 
that requires you to clean viruses out of your system, report the 
offending ip to their isp, they will have to clean it out.
(I send 10 mb of access log to my isp, since a lot of their clients had 
both codered and nimda, they thanked me and the number of these hits has 
dropped drastically)
