Woke up this morning to find my bot blocker had bitch slapped 300+ crawl attempts by Yahoo using the following criteria:
126.96.36.199 [llf520057.crawl.yahoo.net.] requested 302 pages asUpon further examination it appears that this activity started on 11/17/2007 and the IP address used is a Yahoo proxy and some of the forwarded IPs were:
"Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20071102 BonEcho/184.108.40.206"
220.127.116.11 -> rz502516.crawl.yahoo.net.What was curious is the version of Firefox claimed to be Bon Echo which if I'm not mistaken was pre-release Firefox 2 code.
18.104.22.168 -> rz502426.crawl.yahoo.net.
22.214.171.124 -> rz502429.crawl.yahoo.ne
a lot more 74.6.18.* IPs etc., you get the idea...
Didn't look like they were making screen shots based on todays activity unless they had already cached the images so I'm not sure what in the hell Yahoo's up to at this point.
Take a look in your logs as I find it hard to believe I'm the only one seeing this.
