Pretty much, the title explains what's going on. At any given time, there's 10 or more visitors from an amazonaws.com IP, with python-requests/2.18.4 as the user agent. I couldn't find anything about what might be going on through Googling. Anybody here have any idea?

Probably a cloud version of scraping scripts running an unauthorized campaign. Their objectice will vary depending on rarget websites, for example to republish your content to populate classifieds, price comparators or the youtube equivalent of conrent farms (really hard to detect).

I block all AWK IP ranges, except for a select few. 99% of traffic from it is spammers, scrapers, SEO bots, and every other questionable type of page fetcher under the sun.
