    Thumbs down xxxx:+++++++++ (Odd server stats)

    Hi there,

    Looking through my server stats I've ntoiced a few weird referers, most notably:

    xxxx:++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    And also:

    Field blocked by Outpost (http://www.agnitum.com)

    I understand Outpost is a firewall but how does that relate to referers? Would this be a direct request by someone using Outpost maybe?

    i've got a proxy that says it has an option to block referrers. i've never tried ( probably never will ), but as i understand it, it messes with the http header. i'm guessing that Outpost is doing the same, and almost assuredly at the user's request. as for the other one, i would guess it's probably the same type of thing

    Some http filtering softwares, proxies or firewalls remove some headers, either for security, privacy or client restrictions. Referer, User-Agent and Server are common to blank out or edit.

    Nimda leaves strings of X's. I'll post a line from my log (wrapped so the forum isn't screwed up). Was it anything like this?
