User Agent: AVSearch-3.0(AltaVista/AVC)

The UserAgent AVSearch-3.0 belongs to:

AltaVista Search Engine 3.0

This is the search engine AltaVista is selling mainly as a business product for usage in corporate intranets.

We tried out the evaluation version ourselves.
You can spider web sites and index file systems with this engine.

The IP will not resolve properly.
There is no indication that this IP range is connected to any established search engines.

We have categorized this spider as a DC (Decloaking Hazard).

This means that if you are cloaking your site you
should not feed this spider with any cloaked or phantom pages!
