One of our web servers seem to have been scanned by an Arachni scanner. This is cause a problem for one of the forms on the site. We believe that it is an Arachni scanner since the value "[email blocked]" is being populated in the name and address field on the form.

Can you confirm if this value is put in by default for your scanner? If so any way to block these type of scans from your product?
