This should work... The only thing I would say is that your logic is a
bit circuitious. You have:

	Order allow,deny
which means:
	Deny by default, allow only if specified, deny if specified
then you have:
	Allow from all
	Defeats the preceding default thus making the redundant "Deny"
required again.

A simpler logic would be:

	Order Deny,Allow 
	Deny from	
which means: 
	Allow by default, Deny those specified.

However, as I said, the first concoction does parse so should work. Are
you sure there are no further mod_access directives in .htaccess files
or in more specific directory containers which are overriding the
top-level directives?

PS In answer to your question as to why you are getting these IIS
exploits in the first place, they are coming from infected IIS servers
which are simply sending the requests to port 80 on webservers they hear
about. They don't bother to check the server signature, obviously!

If you feel inclined, you might look up the site via reverse DNS, RIPE
etc. and try to send a message to the webmaster to patch his server.
