Subject How to handle "CONNECT ... HTTP 1.1" 400 in localhost_access_log
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2013 19:27:15 GMT
A few minutes ago, I just recognized the following in the
localhost_access_log: - - [08/Jul/2013:15:15:26 -0400] "CONNECT HTTP/1.1" 400 -

and then searched all localhost_access_log files and found more

This is my first time seeing this type of request, but I assume it is very
similar to the "HEAD /..." request attempts by bots/etc. Based on the 400
server response, I assume that i have nothing to worry about here, but it
seems as though the same IP address is attempting these 'CONNECT ...'
attempts, multiple times per day, almost every day. :(

Any advise on how to handle these requests (if necessary) and/or
information about these type of 'CONNECT ...' requests would be
appreciated. Thanks.
