    The following will deny all UA's which begin with Microsoft and do NOT come
    from 131.107.

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Microsoft
    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^131\.107\.
    RewriteRule .* - [F]


    btw, thanks to Jim.

    Thanks.
    From what I can find Microsoft URL Control - 6.00.8862 doesn't come from M$

    How evil (Apart from being M$)?
    "URL Control" sounds like censorship to me...
    Do I need to be afraid?

    Worried,

    I'm told that it searches for insecure forms. No doubt it will appear
    with different UA strings sometime soon.

    Your actually not keying on who it comes from in the SetEnvIf User-Agent,
    rather what the UA begins with.
    The 131.107. is a new M$ bot and the only exlusive M$ that I'm aware of.

    BTW and alternative for this particular UA is :

    SetEnvIf User-Agent 862$ keep_out
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    deny from env=keep_out

    There are few UA's which have been effective in eliminating the application
    of Regex :)
