A couple times now we've seen some strange requests trying to access a "dvdrental.com" resource on our web server. The 
referring URL is always http://www.dvdrental.com/<mydomain>.net or some other variation with a different top-level 
domain owned by us. 

Has anyone else seen this? And can anyone suggest what they might be trying to do? Any input is certainly appreciated.
