Re: What HTTP exploit?

  • From: Matthew McGehrin
  • Date: Sun May 30 17:08:35 2004

It seems to be another stupid Microsoft Exploit that just causes annoyance
for Unix Boxes. The ones on my boxes seem to be about 32K in size and have
been occurring for the past 2 months or more. The only side effect is they
fill my dmesg logs with signal 11's from apache crashing.

pid 74210 (httpd), uid 80: exited on signal 11
pid 19971 (httpd), uid 80: exited on signal 11
pid 19969 (httpd), uid 80: exited on signal 11
pid 19970 (httpd), uid 80: exited on signal 11

Etc.
