    Hello,

    I receiving multiple /use/local/apache/htdocs/501.shtml requests that are causing Apache to restart on my external web hosting VPS (GreenGeeks).

    The strange thing is, that the requests are coming from my own Corporate Network!

    What could be causing this, is one of the PC's or Mac's on my internal network infected??

    Hello :)

    To clarify, are the requests coming locally from the cPanel server, or do you mean from other IP addresses on the same network (but different servers/workstations)?

    Thank you.

    No, the requests are coming from the external IP of our Corporate Network

    You may want to review those systems to determine why those outgoing connections are occurring. It's difficult to determine why a remote machine is making a connection attempt without actually logging into the system and reviewing it's outgoing traffic.

    Thank you.
