I have "OPTIONS" and "PROPFIND" log entries as well, but they don't
appear to be exploit attempts.

This web server does not support any form of DAV. Should we add these
(or perhaps *all* DAV keywords) as "generic scanning activity"
signatures for non-DAV webservers, and report them?

Also, there does appear to be an IIS DoS involving "PROPFIND".
