    Hi,

    Has anyone else noticed this strange/poor behaviour in Windows Server
    2003?

    1. Bind two IP addresses to your server, let's call these 10.0.0.1 and
    10.0.0.2.
    2. Bind a web site to 10.0.0.2. Ensure no other web sites are started
    and bound to 10.0.0.1.
    3. Telnet to 10.0.0.1 80 and you get a connection! You can request a
    document but get:
                    HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
                    Content-Type: text/html
                    Date: Tue, 05 Aug 2003 01:03:45 GMT
                    Connection: close
                    Content-Length: 35
                    
                    <h1>Bad Request (Invalid Verb)</h1>
                    
                    Connection to host lost.

    I guess that is the new kernel mode http.sys driver or whatever it's
    called listening always - but does this strike anyone else as really bad
    default behaviour for a the OS? What if there is an exploit in that
    driver? Your machine would be vulnerable even with the individual web
    sites stopped!
