Jayme.

AFAIK, These programs are only automated browsers.
They request pages from the web servers and save the output in files.
A human user with Internet Explorer / Mozilla / Whatever could achieve
just the same result by using the browser's 'save as' function when
viewing a page.

Your PHP files should be safe as long as the webserver executes
(interprets) the code as it should.

If you have data or other files you wish to keep hidden there should
be an htaccess mechanism on your webserver to prevent unauthorised
access.

The real threat is in someone gaining access at the command prompt
level on your webserver and using 'nix to send files back to
themselves.

Anyone else have a view ?

Findout the "user agent" of that software and use mod rewrite

There is a program out there called WebProtect which encrypts files, and
then uses an equation to decrypt them when they are accessed.
