    There is nothing wrong with your server unless it is a windows server that is not patched, but by the paths it doesn't appear to be a windows server, as it appears to be a linux one running cpanel. Anyways those errors are the Nimda worm going to your server, but if you run a linux server it won't affect it at all. There are also ways to block that, do a search on google.

    Does it reach a point when the nimbda worm is hitting your server so often that it starts tp affect performance, even on Linux. I undertsand the data sent is quite small but with so many copies of the worm floating around I was just curious
