20 minutes ago a user-agent with IP address has visited my web site. It's domain is rev.opentransfer.com. User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; de; rv: Gecko/20101012 AskTbSPC2/ Firefox/3.6.11. Language: en-us,en;q=0.5,de-de,de;q=0.8. Compression: gzip,deflate. Oh, and my domain name ends with .name. Why ARPA has visited me?
