FW: [Dshield] Scans on ports 3128 & 8080 & 80

How would a web server be configured as a proxy?  Or put another way,
how would I make sure my ISA server, which functions as a proxy and also
supports OWA web service, is not vulnerable?
I know this will seem pretty basic and even dumb, but I'm just trying to
learn something here!

	The person[s] scanning you are looking for open HTTP proxies
they can use;
	3128 is the default port used by Squid, a common proxy, and many
	configure webservers to act as proxies on ports 80 or 8080.
