That's a bit overkill, say what you like about OVH - Not ALL of their network is full of spamming morons.

We have a fair chunk of stuff on there and if you accidentally spin up a bog-standard Server 2016 (I may or may not have done this recently, whilst distracted) instance on a public facing IP, in it's vanilla format it'll spew out DNS amplification attacks. OVH auto-nuked the instance within the hour, so they are actually quite pro-active with spammy stuff and we're a legitimate partner - Let alone a rogue individual spinning up VPS's solely for scanning/hacking.
