Fake Googlebot

Every now and then something interesting will pop up in the server logs. Today, it is the fake Googlebot again - requesting 3-4 pages at one go within a second and this went on for about a minute. - - [04/Dec/2004:00:45:15 +0800] "GET /archives/2004/11/01/000196.php HTTP/1.1" 403 315 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"

In fact, this little faker has actually showed up a few weeks back and Google has actually confirmed via email that it is not one of theirs.

Go do a whois on the IP and you'll see where it actually leads to.
