the G++ library.

CGI++ is not free software, although its usage for non commercial

The first public release of CGI++ was in January this year, and
it is available from <URL:http://www.webthing.com/cgiplusplus/>.
As you would know if you had looked in any of the usual places,
such as the search engines, the C++ Libraries list, or
cgi-resources.com.

Given that several products using CGI++ exist, I really think it
would be better for both our users if you chose some other name.
Look at <url:http://www.cgi-resources.com/> to check suitable names
that aren't already in use, and add your library to that list.

1. /cgi-bin/phf /cgi-bin/test-cgi /cgi-bin/handler

I've been seeing a number of attacks of this sort recently
from various sites in the http logs.  The time correlation
between the logs on various hosts suggests that the attacker
was scanning sequentially upward in IP addresses.  Since all
tcp and udp packets to ports below 1024 except for http,
smtp, and ident are filtered out for most, including the
attacking, sites, I'm not seeing anything else in the logs.

209.61.73.47 - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:27 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/phf" 404 -
209.61.73.47 - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:28 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/test-cgi" 404 -
209.61.73.47 - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:28 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/handler" 404 -

Is this a signature of some known attackware?  If so, what
other attacks accompany these http probes?
