Class D is irrelevant.
I've 2008 &09 references to ScanSafe in which they were using the Mzima Networks.

69.174.58.zzz - - [10/Apr/2012:20:02:08 +0100] "GET /MyFoldert/MySub/MyPage.html HTTP/1.1" 200 49634 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0)"

PacketExchange, Inc NETBLK-PACKETEXCHANGE-V4-07 69.174.0.0 - 69.174.127.255
ScanSafe Inc. MZIMA08-CUST-SCANSAFE04 69.174.58.0 - 69.174.58.255

The images were grabbed on an entirely different and unrelated URL (likely an open proxy).

This page gets regular activity from ranges looking for a way to circumvent other denied ranges.

I'm certainly not allowing access to an PacektExchange.
Although it goes on behind the scenes, this is an open challenge.

Question... by blocking Scanscafe is there a risk of blocking legitimate corporate users?

I'm sure there is, however I'm denying PacketExchange, which ScanSoft utilizes.

Okay, I just checked my registration logs. I have a boatload of legitimate users registered from 69.174.0.0 - 69.174.127.255. In 69.174.58.0 - 69.174.58.255 I show 10 legitimate registered users. So I can't block those out, much of my traffic is during business hours from larger corporations. :(

motorhaven,
We each must determine what is beneficial or detrimental to our own website (s).

If you wish to allow just the ScanSoftRange 69.174.58.?

I block both scansafe and packetexchange but I didn't have the 69.174 ranges. Thanks for the heads-up, folks.
