    Question about user agents in referer

    In my logs is there a legitimate reason why a referrer would not have any user agent or should these generally be suspect? I'm curious as I have quite a few with no user agent at all. I know that it isn't terribly dificult to fake these, but shouldn't there be something there?

    Thanks

    There may be a few users whose browsers don't send a user agent, but if you're getting a lot of them then maybe something's up. It could just be that a home made program is crawling your website, so I wouldn't get too worried about it.
