Like i said clearly in the last thread "IIS service stops". That's the problem! 
Imagine a have a Web Server and a Hacker. If the hacker tries to make "GET /WEB-
INF./web.xml http/1.1" every 1 minute (or so), my Web Server will stop every 
time, because IIS Stops.

I know that WEB-INF is protected but that does not mean that he simply throws 
down IIS everytime somebody tries to access it. It makes no sense at all!

I believe this is not a normal behaviour. What's your opinion?

Tks.
