Brand Affinity Tech wilderness msg:4604617 4:55 am on Aug 24, 2013 (gmt 0) Is anybody aware if they have some kinda plug-in or toolbar (maybe even malware), which would allow their bot to attempt to grab pages immediately (a second) following a legitimate visitor request? Had one today and I've a few recorded from the past. In the past, my solution was to deny the provider backbone (bot), however today, I denied the supposedly legitimate visitors IP as well (since they are the responsible party with and/or without their knowledge).

Yes. What was the actual question? :) There are a variety from a UK/China "site malware checker" to a slew of "accelerators" which try to read the whole website in a second in case their master wants one of the pages. UA? IP? Brand name checkers are generally run from servers, which are usually blocked?

Brand name checkers are generally run from servers, which are usually blocked? The plagiarism bot ate a 403. I. e., attempted The question was if Brand Infinity requests are duplicated in the same requests as authentic visitors, and I might add, coming from authentic SE refers (the authentic visitors that is). motorhaven msg:4604875 2:40 am on Aug 26, 2013 (gmt 0)
It might be that those users have installed Brand Affinity's "Fantapper" plug-in. wilderness msg:4604878 3:05 am on Aug 26, 2013 (gmt 0)
It might be that those users have installed Brand Affinity's "Fantapper" plug-in. Many thanks. I'll continue adding users IP's to deny from when this happens again, and since they added the plug-in willingly. Now this has be the ultimate activity. They've had a company in place for a long while that collects fees from clients to prevent plagiarism. Then they create a plug-in for social media encouraging users to download and plagiarize :) motorhaven msg:4604952 1:22 pm on Aug 26, 2013 (gmt 0)
Sort of like a programmer purposely creating buggy code and then charging the client to fix the bugs!
