Re: apache - bots

I created a php 404 Error page, where I list the fingerprints of the worms I know. If I find one of them is causing the request, I let the script simply die so I don't waste any more bandwidth then neccessary on these anoying creatures.

I thought about blocking IP's involved but the sources of the requests change too often.

Is there any docs / FAQs on apache  re: stopping bots accessing it.  At
the moment, one of the worms keeps trying to access
/winnt/system32/cmd.exe even though it doesn't exist on debian (or
unixfor that matter).

I suppose it's a waste of bandwidth as it keeps cropping up every few
minutes..other than that, it doesn't seem to affect the system.
