I'm running catalog based on foundation on IC 5.0.1

I found this entries into my usertrack logs today

20040429	nsession:qwest.net		67-42-47-214.phnx.qwest.net	1083275126		ADDITEM=<item_code>&VIEWPAGE=ord/basket
20040429	nsession:qwest.net		67-42-47-214.phnx.qwest.net	1083275127		VIEWPAGE=ord/basket
20040429	nsession:qwest.net		67-42-47-214.phnx.qwest.net	1083275968		VIEWPAGE=ord/basket

there are about 970 entries of the line above - the bot? trying to access 
the ord/basket repetitively. Was this some kind of attack or some error in 
my code which was making the bot request the same page (ord/basket) for 
about 970 times ?

I have this entry into my robots.txt file
User-agent: *
Disallow: /cgi-bin/catalog/search.html
Disallow: /cgi-bin/catalog/ord/

Any ideas/suggestions if I need to do anything ?
