Spotted the following in my logs a couple of days ago:

64.62.136.201 - - [26/May/2005:13:05:36 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 204 "-" "Twiceler www.cuill.com/robots.html"

Using that Hurricane Electric IP, it fetched robots.txt a few times since then. Their website is not reachable.

It has been my experience this bot pretty much did what it wanted to do, until I widened the scope a bit.

64.62.136

This one utilizes the entire last octet.

Thanks for the feedback, pendanticist.

I have now blocked that range.

You'd save yourself quite a few pests if you expaned the line to:

RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^64\.62\.(12[8-9]¦1[3-9][0-9]¦2[0-5][0-9])\. [OR]

Thanks for your tip, wilderness. Not sure if I have seen any others from that IP range yet, but I'll take your word for it. :)

What a joy to swat a bunch of those unwashed crawlers in one broad stroke!
