My feeling is that this is a Sargus larva, possibly bipunctatus. The final instar larvae have large lateral lobes on the head, but the penultimate instar's head is shaped just like this.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
