Don't know about that but the list at http://feeds.dshield.org/block.txt
is a top-20.

It's updated quite often. Check the "updated" tag in the block.txt. I
download a copy twice a day. 

The offenders you want to script are the top-10 attacking your
particular host?

I had some troubles to make the get_block.pl running. When running it
from the bash it worked like a charm but as soon as it was called from a
cron job it would only download an empty file. I replaced the
downloading with a wget call and haven't had any troubles since.
