Blexbot?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Anyone else notice this little critter attacking webhosting servers with no apparent valid reason to do so?

We noticed the IP: 198.143.129.170 filling up our logs on several cpanel servers and followed it to:

somecrappywebsomethingwebite – crawler dot com

The website indicates it is a bot and that you can easily block the bot using Robots.txt.

We did.

What we found is that does not give a care about robots.txt as it has not even attempted to query it at all.

Anyone else seen this? Seems pretty sketchy aside from filling up logs.
