I got visited by this bot:
NetzCheckBot/1.0 (security seal; <<my domain name>>.netzcheck.com; firstname.lastname@example.org)
from OVH France (yeah, I know): 184.108.40.206
They registered their domain 2 weeks ago.
Showed up on ProjectHoneyPot last week.
Showed up on BotsVsBrowsers on the 29th.
Visited me yesterday, and were automatically blocked by my filters.
But they put the domain of the site they visit in their UA, which is the only reason I list it here, as that's something out of the ordinary. I have seen other sites do it in the past.
I'm really not into blacklisting, but behaviour that is out of the ordinary (like the above) is probably worth noting.
If nothing else, if you automatically report new UAs anywhere, you might want to watch for your domain name in them - otherwise you might publicly identify yourself as a source of such reports. Newsblur is conspicuously absent from botsvsbrowsers, so I assume BvB are filtering those out.
