There's a new Babelfish spider rampant under IP

# babel4.pa.alta-vista.net

This spider sports no UserAgent of its own, instead
it will simply refer the web browser's one.

Nice catch. That would be a tough one to snag unless you ip scanned for it.

I hadn't seen this one until yesterday.

This is the spider formerly known
as "c9.googlebot.com".
(Actually, "c9" is the alias name.)
