In Apache, the web server will setup a basic index page if there is no
'index.html' (or whatever you use for an index). This index, a simple
file listing, can be sorted by adding the '?M=A' options and such. If
you click on any of the column headings, these options will be added.

So nothing malicious per se. Spiders may follow these links.

Did you add the '....' to the client id? If not, this is suspect...

Overall, this looks like a distributed scan from a bot/search engine. I
don't see any major problem here. They essentially just used a script to
hit every page on your site. you may need to clamp down on some of your
authentication if some of these files are supposed to be restricted.
