This week's grand prize goes to
For allowing PUT rights on Port 80 (I wonder how many hackers are
lurking here).
Being vulnerable on Port 25 and many other ports...
Anyone need an open relay?

No wonder the guy is spewing Code Reds...
We just ran a port scan and tested the guy.
Some guy running IIS over a DSL connection with a site that is listed as
"Under Construction".
Just another unsuspecting guy who installed IIS on his home computer and
has no idea of how to protect it.

This message comes just in time as it's 4:45 pm here and I really need a

  Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can do about these attacks other
  defend yourself against them.  I have gone as far as firewalling a few
  the very persistent servers.

  I have tracked down sysadmins of the offending servers in some special
  (hospitals, insurance companies, financial institutions, and
  The nearly universal response was "I didn't know we were running a web
  on that machine!" (a consequence of MS efforts to brag that they have
  deployed IIS servers than Apache, but turning on IIS by default).  I
  that most admins that are actually purposefully using IIS have long
  their servers.  Most of these admins of these infected systems have no
  to do about fixing a problem that they didn't even know that they had,
so if 
  do contact them, they would probably appreciate info on how to fix
  They clearly aren't running any type of IDS or they would have
the unusual
  outbound traffic themselves.
