How to ban FunWebProducts User-agent

FunWebProducts, is a spyware which install automatically on the computer of those who downloaded it... and it kills web server speed! So, there's only one solution: to ban the users with the user-agent FunWebProducts.

I wrote this article in french and english so most of people will be able to read it. Cliquez ici pour accéder à la version française.

I’ve found in my weblogs that some visitors crash my site by sending infinite request to my web server, like reloading the same page every second until the server can’t handle it anymore. Finally, I saw that these visitors were all having « FunWebProducts » as User-Agent: (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; FunWebProducts)

Without explaining what is FunWebProducts, it’s a spyware which install automatically on the computer of those who downloaded it… and it kills web server speed! So, there’s only one solution: to ban the users with the user-agent FunWebProducts, and send them on a site where they can clean their computer…

In order to do this, one only need to add these lines on your .htaccess file:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^.*FunWebProducts.*$
RewriteRule .* http://www.liamdelahunty.com/tips/fun_web_products.php [L,R=301]

You can change the address for anything you want, but I choosed this page because there are informations on it helping the user to remove FunWebProducts and clean his computer. So, as soon as somebody with that user-agent comes on my web-site, he’s automatically sent to this website telling him how to remove that spyware.
