What's interesting in all of this is that ISPrime has been experiencing this for most of this week, yet not them or any
of us has shared a network that is sourcing this traffic.
I know I haven't bothered asking my upstream provider which backbone provider is sending them the "ISPrime" traffic, so
I'm just as guilty as anyone.

Wrong approach, they are *innocent* in this as are the new targets.
insert into your favourite acl:
deny udp host 126.96.36.199 neq 53 any eq 53
deny udp host 188.8.131.52 neq 53 any eq 53
But it's much less work to add a filter on the name server as others
Having the world trying to keep up with ACL entries seems futile. Is
there really nothing to be done about this? (Yes, I know, BCP38, but
obviously the accomplice providers don't care.)
