I would take a seriously hard look at your server. Your are showing a successful (HTTP 200) page view from a spam/porn site in your http logs. This is reason for concern in my opinion and I would investigate network sniffing this traffic or otherwise determining if, in fact, your server is serving this content. Just because you didn't put it there (and in fact, just because you can't see it), doesn't mean it's not there.

These types of sites are known to set up on hacked or hijacked services.

Hi all.

Im getting logs such as

"GET http://www.escorts-etc.com/cgi-bin/ftop100/rankem.cgi?id=gagvault
HTTP/1.0" 200 147 "http://www.gagvault.com/linkspage.html"
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)"

In some of my httpd access logs, even though this type of site is not
existant on the server.
Anyone seen this before??
