I discovered a strange bot trying to access routes which don't exist.

It's user agent is AspiegelBot, know of it?

https://aspiegel.com Possibly related? Owned by Huawei?

Yes; Huawei has launched their own search service as they try to bounce back from being blocked from the Google ecosystem.

"Aspiegel" is a Huawei company that they've incorporated in IE. Incorporating in IE offers a lot of tax incentives for tech companies but in the case of Huawei doing a corporation shell game allows them to try to break free from some of the scrutiny that they've been facing lately.

We could do with some alternatives to Google, although I doubt it'll catch on. Thanks for the link.
