Hi, John.

Interesting story, thanks.  Such crimes are truly global now, and every 
region is enduring them.

I'm not a policy guy, but there are a lot of technical things folks can 
do to raise the bar and make online crime more difficult.  We have a few 
suggestions that might help:

Blocking bogons:

Tracking scanning activity with Darknets:

Securing various pieces of your infrastructure - these devices are 
popular targets!

We also track lots of compromised devices, botnets, malware, and the 
like.  If we can help your network, please feel free to reach out to us
