    Hello,

    A strange thing with v6.10.

    All Yandex bots should normally be blocked. I check the numbers in the database for this new bot, and they do not go up. Also, in my access log I see the HTTP status codes 503 and(!) 200 for this YandexBot.

    How come?

    My access log for “Yandex” of today:

    Line 68: 213.180.203.48 - - [30/Aug/2020:14:35:24 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.1" <strong>503</strong> 7555 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; YandexBot/3.0; +http://yandex.com/bots)"

    Bots table:
    +http://yandex.com/bots +http://yandex.com/bots Enabled 0
    YandeG YandeG Enabled 0
    Yandex Yandex Enabled 4313
    yandex.ru yandex.ru Enabled 0
    YandexBot YandexBot Enabled 78
    YandexBot/3.0 YandexBot/3.0 Enabled 0
    YandexImages YandexImages Enabled 7

    Ayn reason why this Yandexbox gets a 200 status code? It should have been blocked no?

    Thanks,

    Didier.

    PS: I updated now to the latest version 6.11, let’s see.

    Hi,

    I saw many pages with response 503 and 3 with response 200. Check if you have non WordPress pages visited by Yandex. Check if you can get a complete log with visited page included.

    Go to Dashboard => Stop Bad Bots => Settings
    Check if all is enabled.

    Check our Troubleshooting page:

    Hi,

    I forgot to say:
    Please, check your whitelist.
    Dashboard => Stop Bad Bots => Settings (Whitelist tab)
