Web site attacks

This blog has received over 300 probing attacks from an IP address in Singapore that is owned by a well known Chinese electronics manufacturer.

Why?

While it could be “harmless” it appears to be probing the site for particular files (that do not exist). That does not seem harmless. As a consequence I have blocked an entire range of x.y.z.* addresses from accessing this blog. What little I can find suggests it is a “bad bot” run amok.
