PHP Uncaught errors in ID3/module.audio.ace.php

So this is the first time reporting a possible bug or security issue. I use the Search box to search for this possible issue and return nothing. So I am entering what information I have here:

So I am getting this error: Uncaught Error: Class 'getid3_handler' not found in /wp-includes/ID3/module.audio.ac3.php. After some reach, all I can find is it has to do with parsing audio files which we have none on our website.

So searching all of our logs, I found this in our nginx log file:
nginx-access.log:7732: - - [28/Feb/2020:07:20:33 +0000] "GET wp-includes/ID3/module.audio.ac3.php HTTP/1.1" 301 189 "-" "python-requests/2.23.0" 0.000 ""
nginx-access.log:7733: - - [28/Feb/2020:07:20:33 +0000] "GET
wp-includes/ID3/module.audio.ac3.php HTTP/1.1" 500 5 "-" "python-requests/2.23.0" 0.166 ","

so my thought is web-bot keeps trying to access this file for some reason. I have blocked this IP address.
But I did not know if this could be a possible bug or security issue, as this IP which is on the IP Abuse list: https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/ keeps trying to access this file.

Again if this is a bug, it might be causing issues with other sites using audio files OR security issue: as why would that IP address specifically target that specific file?

Thanks Dominik,

I guess my search term was too specific and did not return that Ticket number thus me placing a duplicate.

Thanks for the quick response.
