I just ran this script against my logs, and i was amazed to find what looks
like several hundred entried for the .ida and a coupole of the following:

ov1- - - [16/Mar/2003:11:58:41 +0000] "OPTIONS /
HTTP/1.1" 200 31560
ov1- - - [16/Mar/2003:12:02:04 +0000] "OPTIONS /
HTTP/1.1" 200 31560

I run apache, with no DAV support, so how can they get a 200 return on this.

I have forwarded the logs as well.

Sample from /etc/logrotate.d/apache:

  /var/log/httpd/access_log {
    rotate 8
      egrep '"GET .*\.ida\?' /var/log/httpd/access_log |
         mail -s 'APACHE' redalert at dshield.org root at localhost
      egrep '"GET .*\/msadc\/' /var/log/httpd/access_log |
         mail -s 'MSADC' root at localhost
/var/log/httpd/access_log |
         mail -s 'WebDAV' webdav at dshield.org root at localhost
        /usr/bin/killall -HUP httpd 2> /dev/null || true

(probably some wrapping to clean up before use...)
