Is this Nimda probing ?

(what an idiot - I didn't include the log listings - thwack!)

Ever since our (new, FreeBSD) server was connected to the Internet, blocks of
entries such as those shown below have been showing up in our error log. After
looking through the articles in this newsgroup, my suspicion that they are
caused by a Nimda-infected system is reinforced, but not confirmed.

If this is indeed Nimda, should I be reporting this activity? (If it's not,
what is it?) Are there any other steps I should be taking?

TIA
