Suspicious looking Apache log entries


I recently checked my Apache access log, and found these lines:

67.21.84.213 - - [22/Apr/2004:19:19:55 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 747

67.21.84.213 - - [22/Apr/2004:19:21:49 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 747

I've seen this sort of thing in other places, too. It looks like the work of a script rather than a person. Is this some kind of breakin attempt? Anyone had this happen before? Interestingly, I did a lookup of the IP address, and found that it belonged to an ISP customer in my area.

Well from this point of view it looks like legitimate traffic (just a normal GET-REQUEST). However for further information you probably should take a look at mod_security (www.modsecurity.org) and it's logging capabilities.

Ok, I'll check that out. It just seems odd though, as it occures in such rapid succession.

I get similiar log entries, except it reports the operating system and browser. The operating system is always "Windows 98" and the browser is always IE 5.5. It's a little strange, but doesn't seem to have any malignant effects.

Thanks, I guess it could just be some little quirk of Windoze or something. As long as it's not some script kiddie I really don't mind...
