IP Address was just a single Dot.

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/28.0.1500.71 Safari/537.36

How would I go about blocking that?

What the bleep? Can you post the whole log entry? First and last, if there were multiples. I thought IP obfuscation was well-night impossible. Are you positive it wasn't a glitch in your own server?

you can hide the originating IP behind a proxy/gateway/tor/etc but if the final non-obfuscated IP is spoofed it cannot be used to successfully complete a TCP connection handshake sequence unless you have control of the network.

phranque, was that the www equivalent of The phone call is coming from inside your own house? :)

The DOT is simply a PHP hiccup from the software that serves the logs.
It also happens occasionally with a dash-hyphen, or even an incomplete line.

I should have looked at the logs before posting...

The ip is ovh.ca/ovh.net
It's a pest that sends lots of bots to my site.
