Sometimes you might get a threat alert indicating that a search engine threat attempt was detected.
“Blocked 1 SQL Injection attempt from United States (188.8.131.52) by Bot – Googlebot”
This usually means that someone has planted a link in another website that causes search engines that follow it to execute an attack on your web site. Since search engine bots follow links more or less blindly, this is pretty easy to make them attack other web sites.
Although we treat all search engines as good bots, we do inspect their requests and if a request poses a threat to your web site’s security we will stop it.
