    For the last five days we've been getting hit with 100's of visits a day with the following profile:

    - All new visits
    - All IE 7.0 (various operating systems)
    - All immediately bounce (so 100% bounce rate) and stay on site < 30 seconds
    - All from the US but from different IP addresses
    - All registered as direct visits (both in clicky and GA)

    Does anybody have any clues as to what this might be?
