seeing some strange reguests in apache's "access_log" file
I set up an server some time ago just for learning and sharing some vacation pictures with friends. I started reading the access_log-files just now and there is something that concerns me a little. When some one views the pictures I will get an entry something like
in the file. I understand the first part being the IP where the request came from, second the time when it came then the request, after request server's response and I haven't figured out that last number yet...:mrgreen:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [02/Sep/2007:00:32:43 +0300] "GET /shang_hai/thumbs/ssl23362.jpeg HTTP/1.0" 200 47453
but recently I've started seeing entries like
from IP-addresses that are not any of my friends for sure.
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [02/Sep/2007:08:27:10 +0300] "^\x1b\x8d\xeaE\x89\x05iY\x92\x88\xbe\xad\xde\xfaY\xbc\xff\xd6g]\xbc\xa6\x9dc/\xef\x8c\x9f\xfc\xf1^\xcf/6\xdd\xe1\xf5\xc4\xd0\x9e\xf1\x96\xfaV" 501 -
Should I be conserned about this?
