Running cgi-bin program as a daemon

Running cgi-bin program as a daemon

Post by Joseph DuBo » Sat, 03 Jun 1995 04:00:00

  I was wondering if any one has considered or is running a cgi-bin program
as a daemon? Or possibly running perl as a daemon to reduce the load times?

If anyone can give me ANY info in this area I would appreciate it!

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