comment Why does apache log requests to GET http://www.google.com with code 200?
@PP no, I didn't write /etc/apache2/* myself. And I was hoping rich Uncle would leave me his Lamborghini, but all I got was this fracking server full of pr0n that keeps emailing whitehouse.gov . Actually a co-worker did ask me about seeing this on his server and I was looking for something better to say than "I've seen this too. The server won't explode, so who cares!?" After a few hacks get past, you start to care.

One server this replicates on is a standard VPS at linode. The apache conf is set up for virtual hosting. sites.enabled contains, among other things, a 000-default with a "VirtualHost *:80" declaration. Could that be what lets in requests to google.com ?

Co-workers server. Conf mostly comes from default packaging in Ubuntu. It will be a while if you want a conf file... I'm looking in my servers to see if it replicates...ah found some. Since its debian style the conf is split up -- what pieces do you need?

comment Precautions when using Amazon's S3
have you read aws.amazon.com/s3/#pricing ? $0.15/Gb is $150 for 1000Gb. That can be high compared to the allowances you get with other virtual hosting companies.

Fail2Ban handles multiple attackers just dandy, and can even look them up for you in whois and send a nice email somewhere for tracking or safekeeping.
