Anybody know anything about this company?

We noticed some odd stuff in our error logs coming from their IP, borderline hacking attempts. Contacted them several times but nothing, not sure if it's a legit company but they offer stuff for sale.

Scared to click on them now....

But I've never bought or heard of them before.

Block IP ranges first. Ask questions later

We did but it looks like they sell reports at super high rates. No clue if it's legit or just a spam site but if that data is derived from spidering our website using malicious means that's an issue.

Definitely block them. If I try to contact someone and they don't respond, I block them. Are they just port scanning you?

Appears to resolve to a Paul David Hughes trading as (dba) "hosting systems" in the UK ... an organization with a boatload of questionable websites ... spam, lots of porn ... possibly has been associated with hacking. From a few years ago ... http://tinyurl.com/92zeg5p
