Does anyone know if this IP 141.155.35.87 is from INK? I checked it and all that came up was bellatlantic.It came today and hit hundreds of my pages in a second!
Thanks

adsl-141-155-35-87.adsl.bellatlantic.net
Looks very much like a dsl connection. Someone was raiding your website, or doing a DOS attack.
You could block them in the future by adding
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^141.155.35.87
RewriteRule !^http://[^/.]\yourdomain.com
.* - [F]
If you have mod_rewrite enabled.
I don't believe belatlantic has dynamic adsl so that may prevent him.

Thanks. It is strange though, the ip looked for pages that didn't even exist.

For example: 141.155.35.87 GET /ISP/silicon_valley_ISP.asp/ThankYouPromo.htm (the ending .htm doesn't even exist on our server).

Can you explain?

:) No, not really. Could be the approach of their DOS to make a bunch of bogus requests.

Do you have a user agent?

You could find that information in your server logs.
