Heavy bandwidth on one account only

I have an account on my reseller hosting that is reaching it's maximum bandwidth. It's my own site, but it's just a wordpress blog and has no content yet, it's not taking up much disk space. I don't know why I'm using up so much bandwidth. I checked who is visiting a blank site and I've copied below what I get. Can anyone tell me how to stop this please? I'd prefer not to use up all my bandwidth on this stuff, they're not actual visitors....

Thanks :-)

It's sending Jakara Commons-HttpClient header which is a library part of Jakarta Commons (Java stuff). As speedturtle pointed out the IP is hosted at amazon (most likely their cloud services) so it's likely just a bot scanning for vulnerabilities / outdated WordPress installations.

Simply blocking it per speedturtle's suggestion would be the best idea :)
