same old same old YisouSpider Yisou back from the dead? lucy24 msg:4568773 11:44 pm on Apr 28, 2013 (gmt 0) I thought this was a brand-new spider. Turns out it's so old I've never met it before; Forums search turns up a fistful of posts, none with numbers above three or four digits. Back around 2005 everyone seemed to be flagging it as a new Chinese search engine. :: insert irrelevant allusion here to "Brazil is the country of the future-- and always will be" :: Here they are snuffling around my test site.
188.8.131.52 - - [24/Apr/2013:12:39:58 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 301 557 "-" "YisouSpider"
184.108.40.206 - - [24/Apr/2013:12:39:59 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 910 "-" "YisouSpider" Apparently they're a tentacle of Yahoo! Slurp; the IP bears this out. As long as I was there, I mopped up all the Chinese /15 and /16 within the 110 sector. I don't go below /14 unless something draws my attention to the range. Robotic activity definitely qualifies. No, I don't know why I don't have a global block on UAs containing the element "spider". But I'm sure there's a reason.

I hadn't listed that, either. :( Thanks. lucy24 msg:4607661 8:48 pm on Sep 5, 2013 (gmt 0)
:: bump :: Met it again at 220.127.116.11 There's a snippet of Malaysia nearby at 18.104.22.168/22 but everything else is China as far as the eye can see, so I went ahead and blocked as 22.214.171.124/14 keyplyr msg:4607717 1:23 am on Sep 6, 2013 (gmt 0)
