Purebot from www.puritysearch.net

I noticed this fella hammering away at one of my sites:

195.42.102.25 - - [31/Aug/2010:02:16:10 +0200] "GET /some/url.html HTTP/1.1" 200 13427 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Purebot/1.1; +http://www.puritysearch.net/)"
195.42.102.25 - - [31/Aug/2010:02:16:12 +0200] "GET /some/other/url.html HTTP/1.1" 200 55822 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Purebot/1.1; +http://www.puritysearch.net/)"

The URL in the browser UA string appears at first glance to be some kind of search site, but the "category link" on the page are stuffed with the kind of keywords you associate with spam of all kinds and no actual search results were returned for a couple of common keywords.

It now has its own entry in the Bad Bot List and some special rules at firewall level. Hasta la vista.
