I've never seen anything like this in my UNIX server's logs... until today.  

I'm more upset about the stupidity of the attack than about someone trying to worm into my server.  I'm used to my friends trying to slip in, but these two attempts came from strange IPs.  Plus, none of my friends are both so stupid and lazy as to not check what a web server's OS is before probing for openings.

That's why I like UNIX for web servers; I don't have to do patchwork with every morning's cup of coffee.

This doesn't apply to broken links contained in their USENET archive.  For fun and extra traffic, check your logs for broken links coming from groups.google.com and redirect them to new content or to your search page. </tip>
