Subject [users@httpd] How to remove my server from Open Proxy list
Date Tue, 17 Jun 2008 19:58:48 GMT
Well, I've committed a rookie mistake. I enabled ProxyRequest on my
server without securing it and today I realized that my server is
under attack. I've turned off the server (since its a home server),
and change the configurations
ProxyRequeste Off
ProxyVia OFF

Now when I restart my server, and watch the access log, I see attacks
as shown below. While having it on, i verified via that my server aint proxy
anymore. What I need to understand is how can i get my IP off the Open
proxy server list that they bots are using? or am i just at their
mercy right now?

Please advice.
