Default Troubling Technical Question Concerning Download Managers

Anyone else recently experience this in the last couple months?

In China, many people seem to be sharing their download managers queues on forums lately, and even though they don't have access to your members area, they all hit your server with 401 errors and leave their download manager on, in which creates an overwhelming frenzy like a Denial of Service attack?

Worst off, the download manager they are using spoofs the useragent with: (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) and there is no way to ban these guys except banning all the Chinese IP subnets.

Anyone have any idea which particular download manager uses this useragent (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) as their default?

They can change useragent to anything. It's quite easy to write a download script and fake useragent.

You can log their attacks and ban the specific combination of useragent and ip. This won't stop them completely but it will slow them down, discourage them and they will go fuck around somewhere else. It's not a bad idea to ban all chinese ips since their traffic is pretty much worthless (for porn) at this point. Or you can just direct them to a page within your site with minimal contents.

Yeah, I'd ban all Chinese ips.

The guys that would know better than me can correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always under the impression that most the sales from Chinese ips generally were sales using stolen credit card numbers. A lot of fraud from chinese ips. Seriously why would a chinese man risk using his own information in China and buy access to an illegal porn site?

Which makes me wonder if it's even ethical to allow Chinese access to subscriptions when we know if caught what it would cost them.

LOL ... it is unethical to offer porn to Americans and Europeans so of course it is unethical to offer it to Chinese, too.
What makes me wonder about those Chinese IPs is that most adult sites are blocked anyhow, but still a lot of Chinese traffic shows up in the logs. I know of a couple of services that will allow Chinese to get access, but then they do not show up as Chinese IPs. I am just confused ...
