Usually these fishing for exploits attempts come from compromised PCs or servers. They can be dealt with.
If a bot is itself fishing for exploits then there is something seriously wrong with the bot. It has the potential to infect millions of pages.
How do I escalate this?
The Y webmaster customer care sent me 2 'we are escalating this' messages but you can't reply to them.
Good point on the Computer Misuse Act. I will look into this but I also think a bit of tech sites publicity will get something done.
