Walk with me on this.

I just twigged into some interesting error msgs.

Invalid method in request \x05\x01
Invalid method in request \x04\x01
Invalid method in request \x80F\x01\x03\x01
Invalid method in request \x80+\x01\x03
Invalid method in request \x80\x1f\x01
Invalid method in request \x801\x01
Invalid method in request \x80M\x01\x03\x01

In case you're curious as to whether this is happening to you:

grep "Invalid method in request" /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log | cat -n

and see what you get. My total was 227 for the last 30 days.

Now what has me really curious is that my own IP address showed up for a few of them? Majority of them though are coming from:

200.0.0.0 - 200.255.255.255
Latin American and Caribbean IP address Regional Registry
City: Montevideo
Country: UY

217.0.0.0 - 217.255.255.255
RIPE Network Coordination Centre
City: Amsterdam
Country: NL


As these errors are not showing up in my main account, and I don't want to search the logs of every account, I thought I'd post the info here and hopefully, get some good feedback from those that know more than I.

Thanks
