Why do you think 184.108.40.206/12 is baidu?
dstiles- in the early days of Baidu, it crawled from different spots in this range previous to its own assignments (you may be correct with your subs-ranges.) However since it is all China, I just broadened the block at some point. My notes say I added this range in 2005.
As I block absolutely everything from China I find, even if Baidu no longer uses this range, it matters not to me. It remains blocked, along with the other China Unicom and Chinanet ranges. But thanks for the heads-up. Always good to update my notes with current/accurate info :)
Thanks bhukkel, didn't have that one.
67.228-229 is SoftLayer, another Shoot To Kill range
Lucy - I have 220.127.116.11/16 as Softlayer (blocked), but 18.104.22.168/16 I have as VPLS.net a reseller biz hosting service, with the mothership being Krypt Technologies (blocked) a nefarious dedi/cloud server farm.
