Re: Suspicious 404's



I have seen some entries in weblogs recently that are actually intended to be executed upon log readback.

For instance. Some log entries are actually exploiting stuff like awstats and similar log review tools, and making those tools execute code, instead of the actual http service.

Kinda smart actually.

I got some suspicious error reports overnight. In my own research it
looks like an attempt to exploit a very old bug. Perhaps it is very new.

For brevity I have not included the header in each one.

A 404 error was encountered by 212.143.111.82 on Wed Jul 12 2006 6:03:09
EDT.

The URI which generated the error is:
/.JPEG
/.jpeg
/.JPG
/.jpg
/.GIF

/%0A%7D%0AypSlideOutMenu.prototype.mov
/window.clearTimeout(this.aniTimer)%0Athis.mov
/d%0Athis.mov
