Didn't know where to put this question. Moderators feel free to move to a more appropriate forum.

I was seeing the UA scrape lots of image files so I blocked it and now see dozens & dozens of hits from various IPs. Can anyone shed some light on possible companies, software or browser add-ons that use this UA?

Looks like Pfui wrapped it all up.

While Pfui's comment is indeed helpful, this question isn't anywhere near wrapped up.

There may be a connection to MSIE caching as well. However, this UA is used for too many situations. Looking for more input.

I was seeing mainly bots using /4.0 but today had cause to -temporarily- add an exception to my blocking rule for a new visitor from Hungary. As I know there is a recent legitimate link with the country and my site I'm guessing their ISP, externet.hu, uses this UA on their cache system: pool-04406.externet.hu

Very similar to that used by sTalksTalk in the middle of last year too:
