I have had a new visitor to my site that is using a ton of bandwidth Read below for the log entry it leaves

(A visitor from (
arrived without a referring URL,
and visited
at 02:29:31 AM on Monday, November 3, 2008.
This visitor used Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; itsapic.com_crawler/0.01;

This started about a week ago and my bandwidth has sky rocketed sense then. I am really not able to figure out what this thing is doing on my site. Is it a leacher or what? It even ignores the robot text telling it not to index. I cant ban the IP address because it comes from different ones.

Any ideas what its doing on my site. There is surprising little information out there but quite a few reports of problems.

Just saw that this is a Russian site. Seriously should I be worried? or will it quite using my bandwidth soon?

If you have access to your .htaccess files try adding the following

order allow,deny
deny from
allow from all

Seems you are not the only person who has encountered this problem:
