   I noticed these entries in my apache log today:

And while the first two are specifically targeting port 25, the other two aren't But more importantly, how is this being done, and how do I stop it? Did I forgot to disable something within Apache somewhere?


I don't like those "200" responses you're giving out.
I suggest you have a close look at your limit (and limitexcept) clauses, and read the relevant docs at www.apache.org.

I don't know how to do CONNECT connexions except for https, but I gather it's a generic tunneling mechanism, and for sure I don't know everything, esp about this, but I'd be every bit as suspicious about that as you are.
