It's usually a worm (nimda/codered) doing automated probes, so it doesn't 
really know whether your server'll be affected, it's just shooting in the 

If you know FOR A FACT that your server won't be affected, it's OK to
ignore them or even remove the rule file from snort.conf. That's what I do
since I don't have a single IIS server on my network; altough it was fun
watching the poor worms probing, it got boring fast so I disabled them.
