Spam Bots...
From Deb at FutureQuest.net on 06 October '98
My logs are popping up with a lot of 'EmailSiphon' agents and other EMail collection bots.... I'm considering placing some restrictions on the server in yet another attempt to fight back a bit at spammers...

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a large list of these types of bots that includes how they would show up in a raw log file? If so could you point me in the right direction please?

This is a short list of the ones I personally have come in contact with:

CherryPicker
CherryPickerSE/1.0
CherryPickerElite/1.0

Email Collector
EmailCollector/1.0

EmailWolf
EmailWolf 1.00

Extractor Pro
Crescent Internet ToolPak HTTP OLE Control v.1.0

Sonic
EmailSiphon

WebCollector
Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; NEWT ActiveX; Win32)

Web Mole
Crescent Internet ToolPak HTTP OLE Control v.1.0

WebWeasel
Crescent Internet ToolPak HTTP OLE Control v.1.0

Thanks ahead
Deb
