We checked our log-files with Web Trends and noticed that there are many strange entries: visits to directories that do not (or should not?) excist.
Please check the statistics for last january at: Revised to read Our log files contain hundreds of entries like: /scripts/..%5c../winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+dir /scripts/root.exe?/c+dir /MSADC/root.exe?/c+dir etc.
The satistics for 2000-2002 are not relevant to this discussion.
Are we under attack by a hacker or is it a virus? I do hope that somebody can help. Thanks in advance!

The first time I saw similar attempts several months ago, I contacted my host who verified that someone is trying to hack into the server. I was told not to worry about it, that they had everything under control. I didn't know whether to believe them or not. I still see the same attmepts, but so far nothing has come of them.
You might want to let your host know about it. Perhaps they can reassure you.
