widevine.seattle.winstar.net (63.142.76.129)

The actual IP that hit my site was 63.142.76.129

But doing a trace to 63.142.76.129 ends at widevine.seattle.winstar.net (209.141.173.74)

Been slamming me the past 2 days with requests. Definately spider behaviour. Did request robots.txt.

Arin shows:

That IP is to widevine.seattle.winstar.net which is password protected site.

Looks like widevine is leasing the line from from winstar.net by the address of their company in the website. Widevine is a security company so odds are they were checking for copyright violations and such. These security bots are getting annoying. Do you have a user agent?

Annoying is right. Unfortunately I switched IP's about a month ago, and my config. file since then was set to not log UA's or referrers. This has been changed about an hour ago so if they hit again I'll have more info.
