How Long Does an IP Address Stay Infected?

One of the most interesting questions we get asked at TheatSTOP concerns how long an IP address remains bad once it has been identified as such. Each threat list treats its IPs slightly differently, so the answer is not completely straightforward and varies depending on which list the IP is on. Moreover, many lists do not display specific "first seen" or "last seen" data on each IP address, but rather simply list the currently active IPs (where “active” typically means that they have been identified as bad within the last week or so). Possibly worse for our questioners, some of the threat sources we use are distributed under terms that prohibit us from answering the question.
