hypnosis.demon.co.uk - - [14/Apr/2003:14:25:07 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 20363 "http*//www.thepuzzlefactory.com/r_playstation.cfm"
"Zeus 47063 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32"
"zeus, 47063, webster, pro, v2.9, win32"

You'll notice that there are already two variant listings. The top one is devoid of ',' and is Upper Case, while the bottom one seperates with ',' and is all Lower Case.

I did a Site Search using both variants and no documents were returned. Googling brings up just over one page (one link on Pg. #2) of log file entries from this critter.

Anyone else seen this one?

March 8, 2003, from pd9e372b6.dip0.t-ipconnect.de, "Zeus 45857 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32" hit the main page once. This came from a fake referer. Notice the 5 digit number after Zeus is different from yours.

Did you try searching this site for just Zeus?

Looks to me like you just block Zeus with a [NC]... I actually think I have webster blocked seperately.

Had a few of these the other day:

Zeus 24159 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus 32297 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus 4003 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus 50803 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus 57344 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus 59746 Webster Pro V2.9 Win32
Zeus ThemeSite Viewer Webster Pro V2.9 Win32

None did much harm, grabbed home page and a couple of others. More of a nuisance than anything. My thought was that Zeus folks might be generating the 5-digit numbers to stop easy blocking?

carfac, would your block stop all of these or would there have to be something in the expression for the rest of the UA?

Where I tracked back to, PuzzleFactory, offers a link off their front page to download. Having said that, and as possible additional info...

Could this one have been written specifically for PF or PlayStation? I know diddely squat about gaming much less any reason why they would want to utilize it.

ZZzzzZzzZzzz.....
