Vladis,
        Got that right... this vulnerability was released ages ago if memory
serves right. Whats funny is that I am not using a linux host and I do
not use awstats anyway... makes the attack even more pathetic.

Anyone else seen these really 3l337 attacks?

gotta love script kids...

The truly sad part is that the script apparently still works often enough that
the script kids are still using it, rather than saying "that one's crap, it
never gets me a box".

One has to wonder what level of pwnage exists on boxes that are *still*
vulnerable to this one - they may actually be reaching win98-style equilibrium.
They're old enough that everybody's hit them already, and are probably running
software *so* ancient that it's actually before most of the current crop of
vulnerabilities were discovered.
