  Subject: [users@httpd] What is w;wget?


  Hi,

  I haven't checked my logs for a while, but when I did decide to check
them, I found this strange request:

  62.210.181.107 - - [23/Apr/2005:12:18:44 -0400] "GET
//cgi-bin/awstats/awstats.pl \"w;wget\" HTTP/1.1" 404 303

  This request was repeated 10 times, one time per second, changing the
"//cgi-bin/awstats/awstats.pl" to "//cgi-bin/awstats.pl" ,
"//cgi/awstats.pl"...

  Why is this client so desperate to access awstats.pl? And what does w;wget
mean?

  Actually, I just discovered that there are 27 requests that had something
to do with awstats.pl. What's happening?
