    Are these really the Yahoo spider or is there something funny being done from the Yahoo shops? I found these in my logs and it looks a little odd to me.

    BTW They were in a place they should not be, they obviously do not follow the .robots.txt file.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    That's definitely yahoo's IP address range. Maybe something new they're working on?

    YahooSeeker is Yahoo! Shopping's product crawler.

    Not sure what that other one is. Never seen it.
