Reporting server abuse coming from a Plusnet IP

A week ago I sent an email to abuse@plus.net concerning a compromised machine which is running some pretty stupid malware.
It went quiet for a week but its back on the same IP address which suggests either the machine has got re-infected or its cycling round a list of targets.
I've put a .htaccess rule in to block it but obviously the machine is still compromised
The logs it's leaving behind look like this:
[tt]212.159.xxx.xxx - - [31/May/2015:10:46:56 +0100] "GET /Ringing.at.your.dorbell! HTTP/1.0" 403 306 "http://google.com/search?q=2+guys+1+horse" "x00_-gawa.sa.pilipinas.2015" www.tty.org.uk

No harm in submitting another abuse report Steve. If it's still happening, then PM me the offending IP address and an excerpt from the logs and I'll make sure it's being seen to.

Re: Reporting server abuse coming from a Plusnet IP

The owner of the IP in question was contacted on the 2nd. Have there been any further instances since the 3rd?

Not that I've seen but it seems to be several days between hits.
