Usualy my "Latest Visitors" data shows like this:

Code:
IP URL Time Size (bytes) Referring URL User Agent
85.72.50.96 / 12/25/14 PM 16146 Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.1.1; IdeaTabA2109A
1:05 PM Build/JRO03R) Safari/535.19
But now I'm seeing a whole lot of data in the first column which are mixed up with the IP, and in some cases there is no IP, i.e.: (I'm also getting quite a few hits from bots I have blocked in my htaccess file)

Code:
IP 201.68.36.223.dsl.telesp.net.br

My last action in "Latest Visitors" was to view the list in Legacy Mode, but I don't think that could be the cause.
I have been changing my htaccess file to control bandwidth highjaker bots, and maybe my current code might have caused this.

If you don't know whats going on, could you have a look at my htaccess code and tell me if you see something wrong (I'm posting only the parts I have changed recently). Please excuse my ignorance if you see something too wrong. Thanks for your help.

------------------------------

Code:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} libwww-perl.*
RewriteRule .* – [F,L]

BrowserMatchNoCase "BLEX" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "Ahrefs" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "Ezooms" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "Seomoz" bad_bot
(a whole lot of other bots)

BrowserMatchNoCase "ib\.adnxs\.com" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "AppNexus\.com" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "Java/1\.7\.0" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "darodar\.com" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "make-money-online\.7makemoneyonline\.com" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "buttons-for-website\.com" bad_bot
BrowserMatchNoCase "semalt\.semalt\.com" bad_bot
(and some other spammer websites)
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from env=bad_bot
allow from all
Deny from 180\.178\.62\.74
Deny from 79\.117\.76\.214
Deny from 125\.60\.241\.253
(these last ones are spammers without a known website or bot name)

Apparently the problem was with this last part of my htaccess file:
Deny from 180\.178\.62\.74
Deny from 79\.117\.76\.214
Deny from 125\.60\.241\.253

----------------------------------------
Now my IPs show just the IP.

Although I still have some blocked visitors (i.e. semalt) visiting and not appearing in the error logs.
