    How are you being attacked ? Its possible the IPs you are using were previously used by a site or sites that were heavily targeted for whatever reason. This may just be a continueation of what happened previously. What kind of setup do you have? hardware or software firewall ? Is your ISP able to help out at all ? Perhaps determining the source of the attack or filtering out some of the traffic ? Perhaps ask for a new set of IPs, if it is indeed true you haven't used your server yet, or are not hosting anything that might be a target.

    I would suggest installing and running rkhunter and chkrootkit. There are guides on getting and installing both here on the server. Do you have a firewall running? If not get APF on there asap, but if you don't have one you are probably already hacked.
