Unknown handler causing 404 errors



Recently I've noticed a number of 404 errors being reported in Google Analytics by users attempting to access - '/handlers/download.ashx'.

I do not have such handler implemented in the code and was wondering if this is an Episerver handler?

From the IIS log I can see the following:

GET /Handlers/Download.ashx Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+DotBot/1.1;+,

Has anyone seen this before? If so, my question is if this is Epsierver's handler?

Thanks for help.

Episer doesn§t have such handler. The requests are probably from an automated script, scanning the web for vulnerabilities.
