Subject [users@httpd] Re: zombie hits from undesired sites
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2005 20:12:48 GMT
Thanks Anthony,

I don't think it is as innocent as it seems.  Given the traffic to the 
server, the weblog was for only one very many sites affected, there must 
be a rationale out there for doing it.  All of the server attempts seem 
to apparently originate from activity.

It could also be an attempt to attack a vulnurable server.
