Bots configured badly

Posted by joy

While I was checking my Web site logs last night I noticed another strange “guest” username entry. So armed with my monthly Apache logs and the grep command, I found the offender and it is indeed a badly configured bot.

“GET / HTTP/1.1″ 200 28287
“Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)”

Searching for the IP address on Google shows that this bot or crawler or whatever it is, has gotten around.
