phpMyAdmin searching bot

Every now and then, I'll spot a bot hitting the server looking for an installation of phpMyAdmin. Presumably it's looking for a version to exploit or one that can be used to swipe data from. They typically come as a burst of requests trying to find it in some variation of commonly used folders.

Today though was the first day I spotted a bot that actually specified a user-agent in it's HTTP request. Isn't that kind of like a burgular wearing a bright red shirt that has 'THIEF' written on it?

This bot didn't just hit my server once...it visited three times in the same day...from the same address.

Not much useful in Google about this beast. Just a couple of posts. The rest of Google's results are just webserver usage statistics showing hits by the bot.
