Moron with Microsoft URL Control

1148531960000

Some moron with a User Agent Microsoft URL Control sent more than 7000 hits to radinks.com during a very short period. Apparently this user agent string is the name used the http connection classes in some stupid windows library. Apparently this is used by many morons attempting to write email address harvestors.

This particular moron is worse than most. He sent all the requests to the same page (http://www.radinks.com/upload/demo.php and it doesn't have any email address information on it.

Since the moron wasted about 45 Mb of bandwidth and slowed the server considerably by sending so many requests during such a short period, and because it's important to have the server running smoothly because other people may be trying out Rad Upload, it's only fair that I reproduce a couple of lines of the log file with out bothering to delete the IP.
