I was looking at our proxy logs and noticed that there are thousands of hits from z.about.com - especially at night.  Can anyone help? There is no ip address associated with the hits.

You may have spyware on one of the machines, what type of proxy server are you using? you'l need to get more information regarding the source so you can resolve the issue.

The server is Windows 2003 running ISA server 2000.  I can't find the maching (we have over 900) because the ip address is not showing up on the server.

Thanks

Is this still an issue?
z.about.com is an advertising and tracking site as you probably know already.
Create a domain group for *.about.com
Put a deny rule for the domain group above your allowed internet rules. Someone will shout if it is a requirement for it to be enabled.
