188.8.131.52 - - [11/Nov/2002:14:27:14 -0500] "GET [intel.com...] HTTP/1.1" 200 8192 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Win2000)"
You have to remember that normally speaking the HOST variable (in this case www.intel.com) and the request URI (in this case /) are not passed as the complete item but rather as two separate items with HOST being a variable tagged onto the main request.
The only time that a server will both to check the HOST variable is if server-side code does so or if the server is living on a virtual IP (in which case HOST determines which site you see)
Just to make sure you guys know what I mean, the japanese IP came to my site, and according to my logs, requested www.intel.com and got 200 status. Intel wasn't the referrer, it was requested. The entry didn't log a referrer.
That "200" status code for this kind of request made me nervous the first time I saw it in my logs, too!
Thanks! :) Yes, the 8192 bytes is my homepage, can't believe I missed that, sorry. Anyway, it makes a bit more sense now.
I'm not nervous, but I get really suspicious when I see weird entries. I have gotten alot of them lately. Although none 'seem' to be doing any damage or being hoggy, it really irritates me. ;)
