Spidersoft WebZip - Filling Shopping Basket?

Recommended Posts

I've had user online for nearly two hours and they have a lot of products in their basket. Its obviously not a genuine user, so I started looking in to it. It would appear that it is being caused by a product called WebZip from Spidersoft (http://www.spidersoft.com/). It looks like this is a tool to download a website for browsing offline.

 

The strange thing is that it doesn't look like a robot, as it seems to be browsing and shopping with a degree of intelligence. It hits the login page, seemingly realises its a dead end, and then goes to another page and continues. Its only requesting a page at a time, and isn't causing any trouble (other than the shopping cart).

 

Has anyone else had any experience of this?

I have the same thing happening on my site. This "person" has been on and off my site for over a week filling the shopping cart with just about everything I have for sale. And since I only sell unique, 1of a kind items, when I see 4 of the same item in his cart I get suspicious.

 

Is something malicious going on I should be concerned about?
