Actually I can not because I blocked all china IPs via iptables
yesterday night. But what I see is, that when just blocking single IPs
the traffic starts from other IPs. It would be a fulltime job to
monitor this and to react. I can at the weekend disable the firewall
rules and let it run for some hours. Then I can build a list of IPs
from my logfiles. You will get it then.

The situation is horrible because blocking a whole country is not what
I want to do. But I have peaks with 500 to 600 Mbits downstream traffic
for hours. That would not be a problem at all but I don't want this
because it kills traffic for regular users and at the end it will cost
money at some point.

Too sad people are doing this kind of stupid things... :|
