Feature Request: Fake Bing Bot Blocker (1 post)

    There is currently a feature "Immediately block fake Google crawlers", which we appreciate.

    Currently, I am battling fake Bing Bots that are hitting the site, and am wondering if there is any possibility of adding fake Bing Bot blockers. Log example: - - [13/Mar/2013:10:46:52 -0500] "GET /wp-login.php HTTP/1.1" 200 2309 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)" - - [13/Mar/2013:10:46:52 -0500] "GET /wp-admin/ HTTP/1.1" 301 243 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)" - - [13/Mar/2013:10:46:52 -0500] "GET /wp-admin/ HTTP/1.1" 302 - "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)" is absolutely not a "Bing Bot".

    Thanks for considering it!

    - Scott
