    A Google search suggests a possible attempt to exploit the MS03-007 NTDLL
    vulnerability [via WebDAV] from February 2003.

    Possibly we're seeing an increase of this now due to Agobot / Gaobot /
    Polybot scans, as some variants can exploit this vulnerability. I believe
    new Agobot / Gaobot variants a being discovered sometimes at a rate of
    several per day.

    I would suspect that if you checked your IDS logs or could run Ethereal
    packet captures through an IDS like Snort, the year-old NTDLL signatures
    might help you confirm what this is. Another post I believe in the
    microsoft.public today mentioned a different payload:

    As you may already know, if you're using IIS 4 or 5, I strongly recommend
    running URLScan and the other security recommendations that are all free

    I do not see any prior attempts. I just thought inquiring minds ought to
