It's almost definitely looking for a proxy server - a SOCKS 5 connect
attempt will start with the characters 0x05 0x01, followed by a 0x00
which I believe Apache interprets as the end of the request.

The SOCKS request is formed as follows:

+----+-----+-------+------+----------+----------+
|VER | CMD | RSV | ATYP | DST.ADDR | DST.PORT |
+----+-----+-------+------+----------+----------+
| 1 | 1 | X'00' | 1 | Variable | 2 |
+----+-----+-------+------+----------+----------+

Where:

o VER protocol version: X'05'
o CMD
o CONNECT X'01'
