Today we turn 4 years old!
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site, and to our readers - you are the reason that we are here in the first place!
Here is the latest news from our user agent community:
Google AppEngine user agents have been on the rise, so we have started to tag them in their own category.
Macrothela bot variation Rassler has been steadily advancing its bot.
We have seen versions 0.17 through 0.24 in the last few months.
In addition, many new flavors of the Macrothela bot have been spotted, including atlantic, mars, martin, and zeger.
In hacker news, we have seen some new SQL injection attempts -
The first is an attempt access database schema information from an unsecure site -
SELECT * FROM information_schema.tables WHERE information_schema=database().
The second one tries to UNION the numbers 1 through 5 to an existing SELECT statement -
<?php 'UNION ALL SELECT 1,2,3,4,5' php?>
Here are two other non-SQL related script injection attempts against PHP sites - this one tries to include a remote txt file,
and this one is intended to execute the injected PHP code on the server.
We also saw 3 new Sheen web crawlers this month - SheenBot-1.0.0, 1.0.1, and 1.0.2.
In our four years of operation, we have added 421,718
user agents and 4,030
bots to our community database!
