Subject RE: access & error logs -- attempted crack?
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2002 07:21:12 GMT
I think this comes from somebody who wants to connect to Lania D'Agostino Studios (Mannequin
Service Company) through your computer - anonymously.

The connect method starts a communication between a client and a server during which both
the client and the server may communicate at any time. For example, a proxy should simply
connect to the destination and let the client and the server tell what they want (from my
personal, but not rigorous experience).

Sorry for not replying soner. The 6667 stuff do really puzzle me, and I
doubt I will be able to give you any answer.
What we see is, that something (on connected to yourip:80 and
sent Apache a request like:

where you would normally see something like:
"GET /folder/file.html HTTP/1.1"

Apache naturally respondes with a 405 - Method Not Allowed, where the method
would be "CONNECT". I have really no idea why anyone would be doing this,
but I'm somewhat sure it has nothing to do with the other (CodeRed) log
lines. I don't think there is a CONNECT method in the HTTP standard; I'm not
certain but almost. I should go look it up, but too lazy right now ;-).
Anyway, I don't think you need to worry about that one either.
