I scanned my webserver and I got this result:
Your server appears to allow access from User-agent Libwww-perl. Botnet scripts that automatically look for vulnerabilities in your software are sometimes identified as User-Agent libwww-perl. By blocking access from libwww-perl you can eliminate many simpler attacks
It is a shared host on godaddy, I contacted them and they replied that I have to fix it in my code. Please advice.

According to your description, you want to block libwww-perl.
So far as I know, we can block specific user agents via the .htaccess file, this is located in the public_html folder.
1.Go into your webdirectory
2.create/edit your .htaccess
3.Add content to block libwww-perl from your website
4.Block libwww-perl in your httpd.conf or /conf.d directory
For more information about how to create the .htaccess file and use it, please refer to the links below:

thank you, but the server is IIS. Is there a code or something to use in my web.config ?
