135.245.48.14 - - [06/Jul/2014:11:25:46 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 13808 "-" "Mozilla 28.0" has visited a few times this month always that same IP which shows:
135.220.0.0 - 135.255.255.255
135.220.0.0/14, 135.224.0.0/11
Alcatel-Lucent

It does the things a human would do but what the heck is it? So far it hits only the home page there.

I have a lot of rubbish on 135.245.48.nn and 135.245.168.nn that I wasn't aware of (13 in total, the former this month, the latter March). Time to look at blocking, I think.

I have the range 135.220.0.0 - 135.255.255.255 listed as Lucent but only those /24s are troublesome so far.

I think I will follow your lead, dstiles. I don't care for disguises on visitors, even when they are smiley faced. Thanks!

@aristotle - Yes, I had that thought, I looked at every resource I know of to try to find out what it is, but the Mozilla 28.0 name is only showing up in reference to the Firefox 28 browser, no appps.

Ten hits to PHP honeypots in eight months using the same fake "Mozilla 28.0" UA -- [projecthoneypot.org...] -- equals a blockworthy IP, imho.
