Reporting incidents to RIPE is like reporting them to ARIN. IMHO, it's not 
worth it. However, their whois server will give you more specific information 
about the IP's that attacked you:
whois -h whois.ripe.net aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd

Moreover, they have implemented a so-called "irt-object", that gives you 
specific incident-handling information. Of course, not every ISP has filled 
those in, but there's some progress...
