IconSurf/2.0 favicon monitor (abuse)

400 Prohibited header 'Range'
IconSurf/2.0 favicon monitor (see http://iconsurf.com/robot.html) xoba.com

The above robot is blocked by Bad Behaivor due to impropper headers.

I suggest that the useragent and domain name also be added to the block list.

This website indexes your .ico files and then hotlinks to them from its site. Resulting hotlinking will run up your bandwidth.

If you have not done so already suggest adding .ico to any hotlink protection system you are running. If you are not running one you really need to.

The site says they will honor robots file so you should also add a line to that as well.

User-agent: IconSurf
Disallow: /
