These will be bots that are sat on your site and crawling it which will slow you site down
and will cause other issues as well.

What you should do it enter rewrite conditions in the .htaccess fils to block some of the most
widely spread bots.

If you need help let me know?

ShadzeB is correct that they could be bots on your site crawling your site. Most bots i find crawling the sites that are up to no good are Exabot, EmailSiphon, and Twiceler. Those 3 have been a nuisance on many sites for years. Below will be instructions to add tome stuff to your .htaccess while I am assuming that you are running a unedited version.

In your .htaccess file, you will see this;

Code: [ Select all ]

# -------------------------------------------
# Security Rewrites
# -------------------------------------------

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (\?act\=) [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (sql_login) [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (basepath) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (libpath) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (absolute_path) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (vwar_root) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (includedir) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (file=http:\/\/) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (name=http:\/\/) [OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} (phpbb_root_path)
RewriteRule ^.*$ http://127.0.0.1/ [R=301,L]


just add this after it

Code: [ Select all ]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} EmailSiphon
RewriteRule .* - [F,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Exabot
RewriteRule .* - [F,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Twiceler
RewriteRule .* - [F,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^[Tt]wiceler
RewriteRule ^.* YourRudeRobotIsTresspassingMyCompter.txt [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} \.(ru|ua)(/|$) [NC]
RewriteRule ^.* /files/block_ru/index.html [R=301,L]
#RewriteRule .* - [F]


Now, if you look at the code, you will see one part that points you to a /files/block_ru/index.html, well, that is done because I have found many ru sites hot link and also cause spam issues, and due to the high traffic of them I had, i ended up all hotlinking to my site. With that script, you will need to download the attached folder, and upload it to your site keeping the folder structure. You can see what page they get when they come to your site from a .ru site.

and clicking on the top one that says "HeadShotDomain.net » Kill or be killed!!!"

If your worried if this is going to cause some issues with people coming to your site, well, I've had this for well over a year and a half, and had no issues thus far. Well, that is it. Hope this helps a little. There is more you can add, but for the most part, that covers the largest issues I have found.

To expand on what coRpSE has said.

I would also advise that you install Nuke HoneyPot on your site as well
it is a module that coRpSE created, it will stop bots from registering on
your site and posting spam in your forum, this is a module that you really should
install as an extra layer of protection.

If you need help installing it feel free to let me know and I will assist you.

Updated my previous post with a link to google.ru and searching for my site, if you click the link back to our site, it will automatically take you to that page rather than to our main site.
