I happened to look at my robots.txt today and found something added to the end. I did not put it there and do not know how it got there. I edited it out and changed the file permissions to 444.

Ah OK. I still don't like them poking around my files without my expressed permission. If it shows up again I'll contact my web host.
Thanks for clearing it up for me.
It's a standard feature in cPanel now, I believe. The command points web crawlers to the sitemap Attracta creates for you. It'll re-inject it if you mess with those settings again.
