I would like to know what is "google-proxy-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.google.com" exactly... Yes a proxy, but, is it used only by Google? By users of Google/Chrome? Or, is it a proxy which can be used by anyone, anytime?
In other words, is it safe to accept all requests from IP coming from google-proxy-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.google.com?
I am asking, because, I set up a filtering mechanism (in PHP) , and it happens that I get hundreds of requests per day, from google-proxy-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.google.com which my script is blocking because they all miss the "accept" header field. UA seems to be legitimate browser (but they can be spoofed of-course).
So can , bots use the google proxy service , to access site? Or are all these requests "legitimate"?
