Subject: [users@httpd] Directories Being Probed Even When Index Listing Denied 


I am hosting a domain with no website which is a gateway for several 
applications. Directory indexes are turned off, however I noticed in 
the logs today that one the directories which has no reference to the 
outside world was probed. Is it possible that one can get the directory 
listing of a host even when index listing is turned off through some 
other agency? 

How do I guard against things like this?
