Strange URLs
Why would someone do this?

Hi Folks!

I have "strange" happenings on my site!

Why would someone attempt to access the following pages?:

mydomain/MSOffice/cltreq.asp?UL=1&ACT=4&BUILD=4219&STRMVER=4&CAPREQ=0

mydomain/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?UL=1&ACT=4&BUILD=4219&STRMVER=4&CAPREQ=0

I run on a linux server anyway - this looks like some kind of hacking attempt for a windows server, to me!?

Best
Shady!

I see these requests often paired with valid ones and take them to be a user with a virus on their computer.

I did wonder about ways of alerting the user but expect it wouldn't be easy to open a window or modify other requested pages to alert them.

I guess I don't have to worry. Don't use frontpage (why would I?!) and the system is (I believe) very secure!

Thanks guys!

I dont believe this is FrontPage but Office Web Server related.
