IIS exploit attempt -- a buffer overflow in the indexing service.  A
patch for this has been out for well over 2 years.  It doesn't look like
you have anything to worry about since the server returned a 404.  You
didn't mention what http server or OS, but you should be aware that any
vuln that contains "cmd.exe" is not going to have a chance to do squat
on anything but a horrifically unpatched IIS on Windows.
