    Just thought i'd give a heads up, because generating thousands of pages every day it's obvious they are not hand written. ;)

    This morning one of my servers got hit with this company:

    [​IMG]

    They are like Copyscape but automated, and pretty popular with customers like AC, ComputerWorld, Financial Times etc. They scan your pages, and provide customers with matches and your URL's their content appears on.

    As you can see they have a C block of IP's, so at the command prompt do:

    Code:
    iptables -A INPUT -s 209.133.94.0/24 -j DROP
    Or in IP Deny Manager in cPanel:

    Code:
    209.133.94.0-209.133.94.255
    They may have other IP's, but that's a good start. So far i've only found that /24 range for them which you can see here: Arin.net

    thanks for the tip Sweetfuffy.

    Should we block this ips or reditect them to somewhere else?

    add this one too: 66.132.249.23 server2.attributor.com

    This was a heartbeat moment.

    Just checked my IP-bot-list from fantomaster and they are already included, good thanks.

    Well, thanks anyway.
