Bad header from MSN search RRS feed

  • Question

  • Severeal requests are coming from 65.55.209.155 with an invalid header.
    Usually, the "From:" header contains "msnbot(at)microsoft.com", but some requests contained "If-Modified-Since: Tue, 21 Apr 2009 08:35:20 GMT", like if the actual string was missing (and the new line).
    This is blocked by our Web application firewall :-(

    Is this a known bug? Can we expect this to be fixed soon?
