During this work-around though, it was let slip (by a BigPond support

tracking virused users becomes a hell of a lot easier. The application
process wasn't an approval/disapproval process but more "if you ask for
one, you'll get one". Maybe your customer can contact BigPong and ask
them for a static IP and then everything (should) be back to normal :)
