Virtual patching.
How do I virtual patch the machine in ireland which attacked my mail server just a few minutes ago?
You don't patch the machine in Ireland, but once your "virtual patching box" identifies a hostile system and identifies what it is infected with, it can then do the virtual patching on your end so that all subsequent pkts entering from that machine in Ireland are cleaned and no longer hostile.
Does it reset the evil bit too?
