HTTP attack or not?

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Bush is a Fascist, Aug 12, 2005.

  1. Hi all,

    My webserver periodically receives HTTP requests
    of the following format:

    GET /
    Host: my server IP
    Authorization: 5400 bytes of junk

    The other day, my very own home computer apparently
    sent such a request to the server, which has led me
    to believe this is just something that perhaps IE
    spews out. I was unusually using IE that day
    for testing. Or, I suppose my Windows may be infected
    with something.

    Anyone have any insights on this?
    Thanks,
    333
