More Evolving Scrapers

Like I've been reporting, they're all going stealth.

I keep seeing user agent change from this:

62.163.33.234 "Java/1.4.1_04"
To this:
62.163.33.234 "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)"
Soon the usual blocking methods won't work whatsoever.

Wake up and smell the COPY before it's too late!

Bill, watch out, this German dude is a comment spammer:
Chris' traces in Google
I guess I should have a talk with his German blog host in regard to his advertising campaign :-)

And to Chris:
Nur ein gehirnamputierter Volltrottel spammt so offensichtlich für sein Blog. Bin gespannt, was Blogiggo dazu meinen werden, wenn ich sie nachher anschreibe. :-)

Yup, I figured he was, but it's about the least obnoxious spam I've seen in a long time.

Olliver said...

Sure, his spam lacks the commercial aspect (no Adsense on his spamvertised blog) and from that may appear somewhat pointless ;-)
