Subject [users@httpd] My Apache Access Log
Date Sun, 22 Jun 2003 02:57:41 GMT

I am running the Apache web server at home (just for
testing purposes). I do not even has a web site. I am
running localhost. I was surprised to see today when I
opened the log access file some very strange messages
like the one below: - - [21/Jun/2003:22:49:07 -0400] "GET
 HTTP/1.0" 404 309

or this one - - [16/Jun/2003:17:25:57 -0400] "GET
/c/winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+dir HTTP/1.0" 404 322

I really do not understand these messages and to me it
seems that I am under attack.

Does anyone knows what this could mean? and probably
if it is an attack, how do I stop it.

I am running windows XP Professional Edition.

Thanks. -Mame Mbodji
