There was a time when "UA ends with 5.1" was a valid browser, however that's not so today.

Also note leading space before semi-colon.

I think NT 5.1 (XP) is still valid. However MSIE 6.0 is defintely past its sell-by date.

I hate those Early Registration blocks. You never know what you're going to find.

Making up a random number for ddd gets me the Nevada System of Higher Education for the whole /16. Which can be anything from legitimate research to a computer-science class to unauthorized activity on the side.

I agree, just NOT "ends with".

I block UAs that end with 5.1.

    What about a UA ending in 5.0?

    For example (from my logs):
    "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)"

    That UA (ends with Trident) is fairly common these days, however I use it in some instances as a dual condition with an IP.

    Not without SP2 or SP3
    an SV1 token appears in the user-agent string of a Windows XP user who has installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)

    For the 3rd time in this thread ends with 5.1

    thrahser,
    from your msdn page:

    SV1
    Internet Explorer 6 with enhanced security features (Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 only).

    Trident token
    Trident/5.0 Internet Explorer 9

    IE 8 or above requires installation of SP3 on an XP machine.

    TrendMicro has used the same UA on my site for around 3 yrs.

    Ken,
    If you wish to allow an exception for Trend than just add an IP line with a leading exclamation point.

    Personally, I've gone to great lengths for more than a decade to prevent my site from being cached.
    Most content filter tools that are greedy are going against the grain.
    Trend is the worst offender.

    I'm sure there's old threads on Trend ;)
