Wanadoo.fr has long been the source of persistent and obnoxious FTP port
scans, so after ascertaining that there was no valid traffic to or from
that network necessary our work, we finally blocked them at our firewall.

Note from a previous e-mail regarding Wanadoo:

Jordan Wiens provided a list of network blocks owned by
France Telecom (wanadoo.fr's parent company). Several posters
indicated that they were at least considering blocking all traffic
from these IP ranges.
