Hi there

We've had this triggered by bots scanning our Linux/Apache web servers.
However, when we first saw this, we got a bit freaked out because it
implied we had unpatched IIS servers (well, that's how I interpreted it)

I think this rule is mis-named. It doesn't detect ASP-related scans, it
detects *any* webscanner. So I think it should be renamed and
reclassified, eg

web scanner/bot detected"; flow:to_client,established; file_data;
content:"HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found"; fast_pattern:only;
detection_filter:track by_dst, count 100, seconds 30;
