    Error logs

    I've just looked at my server error logs on 1and1 hosting and have found some odd looking pages:

    217.160.233.109/w00tw00t.at.ISC.SANS.DFind:)
    217.160.233.109/msadc/..유..유..유../winnt/system32/cmd.exe
    217.160.233.109/scripts/root.exe

    217.160.233.109/Ads/adxmlrpc.php
    217.160.233.109/a1b2c3d4e5f6g7h8i9/nonexistentfile.php
    217.160.233.109/ads/adxmlrpc.php
    217.160.233.109/adserver/adxmlrpc.php
    217.160.233.109/blog/xmlrpc.php
    217.160.233.109/blog/xmlsrv/xmlrpc.php

    It's the first three that i find most odd, although I don't have any directories anywhere that would relate to the blog entries.

    Should I be worried about these?

    a quick google search on dfind....turned this up
    http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=.dfind&meta=

    doesnt look good...it also does look like the server has been updated, or patched for a while as this is an old "utility" and should have been detected by an AV...

    as for the root.exe

    http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=...G=Search&meta=

    either you put an unpatched server up...or its been owned for quite a while

    yeah, I've just been looking on google. However, this is 1and1 hosting, not my own server. So I'm guessing I should contact them?

    Edit: thinking about it, seeing as these are in the error log, could it be that some kind of scanner is looking for these pages, but not finding them?

    Don't let your web site being hit by worms alarm you; this happens to every web server, all the time- in fact often many times per day.

    These worms pick random IP addresses and/or hostnames to attack so you won't have been singled out in any way.

    If your system is not vulnerable to the vulnerability they're trying to exploit you have nothing to worry about.

    I find that most worms attack IP addresses not host names; therefore, we normally set up a dummy default host and have its access/error logs separate from our real hosts to avoid confusion.
