I've seen this bot hit lots of pages on my server consuming alot of CPU, can anyone let me know what is its main purpose, and where it comes from?

it's a spam bot.

You can block it with mod_security:
SecRule HTTP_User-Agent "GSLFbot" "deny,log,status:403"

or rewrite rule:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^GSLFbot
RewriteRule ^.* - [F,L]
