Dow Jones-Telerate: Bad Traffic

Getting some suspicious traffic from this network. Even after blocking them they are somehow able to scan every page in our site which tells us that basically they took a copy of the site and all the URLs in it. They cannot currently link from page to page because they are blocked, so possibly storing a copy of the whole site somewhere.

We have contacted this network but the suspicious traffic continues. One of the email addresses in the whois information bounced.

Additionally the traffic is coming from an IE6 browser which generally (not always) indicates the work of bad code.
