Denial of service ? Wachovia ?
I had to ban the following IP today :
IP address: 188.8.131.52
Host name: cic2-sn-oprx-pxy8.wachovia.com
The IP address belonged to a Guest account and appeared to be requesting over 50 pages at the same time and launching simultaneous searches, I wouldn't have really minded but they where killing my server and I had no alternative other than to kick them out or watch the server come offline.
This IP address appears to belong to a corporate proxy, so if you work for Wachovia please let me know what may have been happening.
