The discussion here is about monitoring vulnerability scanning traffic,
not securing vulnerable systems. I'm pretty sure the discussions about
securing vulnerable servers (e.g. the official Microsoft announcement)
include a discussion of URLscan.


	I think Fernando is also referring to the logging functionality inherent in URLSCAN.
Not only does the tool help in locking down IIS but it also enables you to log disallowed requests.
The logging is a little on the weak side but functional, I was going to suggest it also but
the thread looks like it's more geared to apache.  I've been getting so few scans(maybe one a day
if that)I didn't even pursue scan submittal.

Thanx, Paul
