Because there are a slew of ISP's providing homes to criminals, seemingly without giving a hoot about the victims being affected by their customers, I thought I'd try a name and shame approach, and to start it off, I thought we'd name and shame German ISP, NetDirekt.

Now, you'll have to bear with me here as I've not got this blog pre-written or prepared, I'm sort of, writing it as I go.

NetDirekt have a well known and well publicized reputation as far as criminal activities go, due to their long standing housing of the well known Internet Service Team (commonly referred to as the IST).

The IST, amongst others, are just some of the folks behind the Google, Bing and Yahoo etc etc, blackhat SEO campaigns, that lead unsuspecting folks to fake malware and more recently, the likes of the Koobface exploit.

Now, given the amount of activity there is within NetDirekt's network, on behalf of the IST, and the amount of publicity their network has received over the years, because of such activity, leads to the obvious question of - why? Why are they allowing this? Why are they not taking steps to boot the IST off of their network?
