while looking at the stats for my website today, I noticed some
attempts to access a cgi-script on the server that's not linked from
The scripts got uploaded by mistake, when I did a sitecopy and
uploaded files that weren't ready to be released.
But what puzzles me is how anybody else found out about the script and
tried to access it. Is that possible or are there any other
explanations? The server is Apache 1.3.19. I did check the client IP
addresses. They came from different domains, some of them obviously
being addresses used for dial-up access.
( The files have been deleted in the meantime of course ).
