    GET requests for other sites

    For kicks today, I was crawling through access_logs for the main IP for my box. Besides tons of junk like people trying to exploit default.ida, I've seen numerous requests for URLs like "" or "GET HTTP/1.1"

    I pulled up a telnet session on port 80 and tried this (they were getting 200s, not 404s), and I just get served / on my site. I'm just wondering what's going on -- is there some exploit that's being tested for? Do some webservers go out and grab the page?

    And what is a SEARCH request? I didn't know HTTP had such a thing. (In fact, it seems that it doesn't?)

    SEARCH is part of WebDAV. They're probably poking around for broken proxies and other useful exploits.
