#578 Improved hacking detection

Gerry Kroll

Replacement for "includes/session_spider.php" for 4.2.3 and SVN versions.

Adds check for new hacking attempt to escape from PGV directory. Also adds "bingbot" and "archive.org_bot" to the list of search engines that don't need to be logged.

Download the ZIP file that matches your version of PGV, unzip on your local PC, and then copy the result to the server directory where PhpGedView has been installed.
