My Cobalt was a spammer, now mega viruses

My Cobalt server was a spammer. The problem is fixed but now Im getting mega viruses addressed to my servers. Im thinking about changing the IP scheme on them but that would be alot of work because they are also DNS servers. Im also thinking of moving the DNS service to a RedHat server and changing the IP scheme on the Cobalts.
Any suggestions?

Can you rephrase the
now Im getting mega viruses addressed to my servers.

I can't make a lot of sense of that statement, what
exactly is the problem?

I believe that as a result of the Cobalt being a spammer alot of hackers have the servers IP address. So now Im getting a tremendous amount of viruses and intrusion attempts with the destination address of the servers.
