I did a trace rout on the ip. Here are the last few hops:

RewriteRule ^$ get_the_hell_out_of_here.html
RewriteRule (.*) get_the_hell_out_of_here.html
What that will do is make everything in that folder default
Chmod changes may work, but be careful to test things out. You may accidentally restrict your cloaking script.
What program/scripts would someone write to know hidden files and directories (ones which are not linked to the website or anywhere else for that matter?
I have always wondered HOW someone out there can get to hidden directories without stealing someone's password and FTPing into the site??
Yeah that trick littleman suggests will make get_the_hell_out_of_here.html be served no matter what page is asked for. You'll want to place a new .htaccess in the cloaking directory so that it affects all directories below it and none of the directories above it.
I needs to read sum more to grasp wut I gotta do here.
Let me understand here...
if I place .ht in folder named IPFire then all the subs inside will be covered from a browser trying to reach them but when the script sends a spider to one of the subfolders in IPFire it doesnt interfere?
The cloaking script doesn't send the spider to the IPFire folder, but rather retrieves your html out of that folder for the spider. It is a subtle but very important difference.
When I was just starting to mess around with some cgi scripts I was playing with a shopping cart script and I did a random search for the standard name of the file that is suppose to hold the orders and credit card information for that script. I was amazed at how many unprotected files were out there. One little search in altavista and I was able to view a few hundred CC numbers. Good thing I am not a thief.
Man I wish I knew Linux better. If somebody wrote a book on basic webmaster server management I would be first in line to buy it.
I believe my situation has to be an inside job....nobody could figure some of the names I use and I always rename the directories ridiculous names...nothing common. This person knew not only one but two of them and specific file names within...but they were one directory short of being there and the .htaccess fix yall gave me last week redirected them to root. Apache Guardian told me so.
I think someones using a proxy in .br to hide their tracks but I sure would like to know how they know what they know.
Hmm, probably there is something wrong with your path to get_the_hell_out_of_here.html. Oh well, at least it fixed your problem.

I know what you mean, I haven't been messing with linux all that long either. To people who have been using *nix systems for years this stuff is second nature, but the learning cure is steep. One thing I did that has helped me a lot is to have a linux os computer at home. This way I can mess with things and do experimenting without jacking up my web servers.
That is kind of scary.
And I know that dummies books aren't favored in some corners of the cosmos, but if you pick up administering linux for dummies, that should do the trick.
It gives a lot of stuff, and doesn't bother with too much of explanation, at least, in the technical sense. Then after that you could pick up a regular book, and have plenty of background to understand the arcane stuff they are bound to get into.
Only reason I spoke up is I, too, am learning linux. Must fight the evil empire every way I can...
May the Force be with us in our quest for stability.
I have lots of dummy books ( you can see a few of them on my desk in the profile shot).
Sometimes you just get fried on looking thru all that stuff for the one little thing you just wanna get done.
That's why I like this here forum.
Say hi to the Princess for me.
