Nazis just never learn.

I probably should not have laughed quite so hard when I started pasting-in EDIS ranges and found that the 37.235.c.d. piece was in my notes as Poland...

My German friends claim every vestige of Nazism has been eradicated, and are truly ashamed of their modern history.
But Austrians...

Moving rapidly on from the subject of National Socialism...

Ontario, Canada, is also host to some very unpleasant characters, amongst which we present: spdnetwork

Visited our valid robots.txt, ignored its disallow, and proceeded to grab dozens of pages until zapped.

MSIE five? Even on my (very permissive) site they'd never have got past the Old Browsers page.

OK, where do we draw the line if not Netscape 3? :)

We still have css hacks for IE 6...

But in my defence, we've blocked Blackberry on UA (and principle) for ages.

New MS range, registered last June:

23.96.0.0 - 23.103.255.255
23.96.0.0/13

I've started off with it blocked; we'll see what developes.

I know 12,000+ people, well educated(think 100K+) that use BBs, me(I have 3) included. I actually had to redo several intranet apps recently to accommodate the browser.

You work in the Pentagon?
If so, advise your colleagues, if they do not already know, why they are not welcome on the 21C internet. :)

Actually I'm pretty sure that DS range has been around since about March of 2011 (according to my notes.)

Not that it actually matters, but I've had 107.150.32.0/19 blocked in a client's htaccess for well over 2 years and my note says it was registered 03/2011. I've often seen the original registration date changed when the info is updated.

FWIW - whois.domaintools.com also says AS33387 DATASHACK - DataShack, LC (registered Mar 18, 2011)
9:53 pm on Feb 4, 2014 (gmt 0)



Actually, the entire 107.150. range was re-registered/appointed during 12/2013.

Not that it matters. :)

keyplyr, are you positive your notes aren't attached to some type of time machine? I've still got huge slabs of 107 labeled bogon, including most of 144-191 with isolated holes. (Almost all of the holes are block-on-sight server farms. Figures.)

Found one I had no info on, not a new register, but new to me:
Netelligent Hosting Services (Montreal)
67.212.64.0 - 67.212.95.255
67.212.64.0/19

Wearing UA "c3.sh/0.01" which I have not seen before.

Thought I had HP fully blocked, but today 15.126.240.nnn displayed identical behaviour to those hyperactive Swedish fellows, xeex, et al...
Make your own minds up.
For me 15.0.0.0/8 is now Blocked

Fer hevvins sakes, I'm not saying you're wrong. Just that you seem to get a lot of retroactively correct information, which is unnerving :)

Mention of Bogons is relevant.

I had to contact two site hosts recently because I couldn't access their sites.

The first one took some time to resolve.

It was my national Asian ISP, who had used a Bogon IP (quite legitimately) in relaying, but the host-site had not updated their Bogon filter.

The second incident:
Took me three months to get the CTO's attention, (whilst being fobbed-off by their Indian call-centre).

I'd guessed the same precipitating cause.

The guilty party this time was a major UK utility company using an old Bogon filter, until I nudged them to update it.

Problem solved.

Lesson: Regularly refresh +our+ Bogon filters.
