Noticed the lines below in my error log today. I assume this is part of some script which looks for the most common installation paths for certain apps with the goal of checking version and exploiting known holes? I haven't seen something like this in our logs before so I thought I throw it out there to be sure. All of these went to a 404 error.

Do a search on Google for some of the directories being requested, and you should be able to find plenty of information about the variations of the Lupper [vil.nai.com] worm.
