Question:How can I block bots from accessing my web site?
Answer:Put the following in your .htaccess file and place it in the folder which you want to protect (most likely your document root folder).
That www.iaea.org referrer is part of some abusive bot that many webmasters banned. The bot uses iaea.org as a referrer. You will find it coming in from all kinds of ip numbers in South East Asia. The easiest is to ban all traffic from this referrer.
