Why isn't the Botnet service blocking the hacking attempts?

This attack has been on-going and has known IP's that they are using.

So why isn't the service we pay for blocking this attacks?

Even Cisco has posted the IP's being used.

    You're assuming Sonicwall updates their botnet list when attacks are occurring, let alone maintains it at all. You're paying for a license to utilize a feature, not a service.

    The current Sonicwall-maintained botnet list entry count is 593 entries…

    Cisco's list is in the thousands, and hasn't changed in a week…

    I'm sure the attack source IPs have changed though.

    They're a moving target like TKWITS said. For my company, I enabled the Dynamic Botnet Filter and then I periodically gather unique IPs that are attacking us and put them on a Github page that the Sonicwall can read and block.
