These are a bunch of weird UA I have seen lately that seem to be employing some sort of bot or script - has anyone seen them or know what they are?
Does anyone know if there is anything that uses this UA that is valid?
UA: Mozilla/3.01 (compatible;)
IP: Way too many to list
I have heard it is used by a lot of proxy servers - but cant find which proxy software returns that. A LOT of my traffic that sends that referrer seems bogus - 85-90% of all traffic with that UA.
These two came in from the same IP address... the second one seems to be a very dumb bot. The IP address was 18.104.22.168
which is listed to charter.net - and seems to be the source of a lot of bots, scripts and more on our servers lately (though usually with easier to identify UAs like Mozilla/3.01 (compatible;)
UA: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; Terra Industries)

Thanks for any info...
The visits were enough to alarm me, however not enough to promote any action offsetting the loss of regular visitors.
Thanks for the heads up.
