Moreover, 99.99 % of these request come from standard WNT / W2K users who started their IIS
service "to test what it can be" and who never stopped it. They are not likely to clean their
computer because they don't know they are infected...

Warning: this may start flame war - but its my opinion.

What is the purpose of detecting and trying to prevent these attacks? If 
someone code reds (or similar) you - they get a 404 error. Why waste the 
extra processing power and  extra config maintenance on something that 
does "no harm". When the next type of attack comes out - should the 
config be changed to address that? Its a waste of time.
