It is a "compromised" spam bot.
The IP address says its canadian.
Even the spammers have their day for having an unpatch windows machine.

don't know where the chinese spam bot idea came from - it's a machine infected with the Code red / Nimda worm.
You can't block it. The best thing to do is look up the ip address to find out which company hosts the machine and then write to them.

126.96.36.199 is not chinese:
Cogeco Cable Inc. COGECOWAVE-1 (NET-24-226-0-0-1)
188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206
Apart from this, Indy Library is a candidate blocked by many here: [webmasterworld.com...]

|The Chinese bot thing came from a site and I quote:|
[quote]Originally, the Indy Library is a programming library which is available at http://www.nevrona.com/Indy or http://indy.torry.net under an Open Source license. This library is included with Borland Delphi 6, 7, C++Builder 6, plus all of the Kylix versions. Unfortunately, this library is hi-jacked and abused by some Chinese spam bots. All recent user-agents with the unmodified "Indy Library" string were of Chinese origin.[/quote]

righty - missed the "Indy Library" part - I was just going on the addresses its trying to hit.
I would say contact the host is still the best advice though.
