It's a web crawler name...


"yahoo! will be modifying its web-indexing robot (crawler) user-agent to reflect our company name. This is the crawler we use to build a searchable index for the yahoo! search services. To ensure consistency and minimal disruption, we will continue to maintain the "slurp" name within our web crawler user agent and continue to support "slurp" as part of any robots.txt files that references this.
