The traffic you logged looks like plain old Nimda.

It's dangerous, but it is probably not a conscious attack (Nimda repeats
these 16 steps, with the same exploit attempts you logged). Even if it is a
manual attack, the same protections apply - keep your IIS or PWS patched and
locked down, block attackers IPs if desired, report it to the attacker's ISP
as a Nimda infection if you want.
