Making the rounds today i discovered a bunch of FAKE Yahoo! bots crawling one of my sites. I was puzzled at first knowing that Bing crawled for Yahoo! Thinking that Yahoo! had cranked up it's old search engine 'Inkitomi' i decided to investigate further.
Further investigation revealed these little fellas were NOT Yahoo! Bots. They were spam bots running from ovh.net hosting IP ranges. These bots are named as the IP address itself ip-192-99-46-41.net and so on. Pretty sneaky claiming they are from Yahoo!
An antispam service i contract with (cleantalk.org) shows serious activity from 184.108.40.206 with hits as recent as today. I'm sure similar activity is coming from the others, but i didn't take time to look them up.
