Ongoing DOS attack from Iran

Since yesterday morning I'm experiencing ongoing DOS/Brute-Force attack lunched from Iranian IP 31.130.184.212 against my smtp server (I have static IP).  I'm not the only one person who is targeted by this attack https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/31.130.184.212

Of course fail2ban blocked this IP and I moved this blocking to my router's firewall but looks like attacker running some script in loop which doesn't check response even if I'm specifically dropping incoming traffic.

Writing email to provider is pointless as in countries like Iran or China they never responding or acting on it.

Now question is: does Plusnet NOC/SOC is able to react on this kind of attacks ?  

It's not massive flood of traffic (around 42 connections per minute) but still bringing unwanted traffic to internet connection.

If your system's secure, sit tight, eventually they'll give up and move on to someone else..........

I manage and design system for living so I'm not scare. Just was interested if Plusnet SOC/NOC have some IDS/IPS system which can used to prevent this kind of attacks.

ISPs blocking IP addresses might be a Government decision, not for mere mortals like us.

As you know, we can only block traffic at the point of entry to our building.

Nah, I use to work for ISP for around 7 years and we use to have bunch of IPS'es which were analysing traffic and blocked attacks.

I don't mind using my own solution to keep my network safe 🙂

Interesting, I've ran many installations including three Private Banking systems and I've never been able to get any ISP to block incoming traffic. Always given the same excuse...............
