I enabled the IIS on my windows 7 desktop just so that my coworkers can download a file there (i.e. just one simple home page with a link to a file), and because it was a small group I gave them the IP address for them to visit (http://
..). I do have a firewall on my computer (Norton) so I thought it should be okay. The traffic is generally very slim but I just noticed that yesterday's log file was larger than usual, so I checked it out. If it helps I can upload the log file, but under the column "cs-uri-stem" I saw a lot of folders that should not be accessible through the IIS (i.e. not in the WWWroot) like
and one of these is a folder that I have not accessed for quite a long time -- definitely not that day.
sc-bytes and cs-bytes are pretty small, with a max of 5000 across rows.
sc-status is 200 for one (one folder), and 404 for all others.
cs-method has one entry of "option" and a lot of entries of "PROPFIND"
Is this something I should be worried about? I have since disabled the IIS and cut off the computer from the internet and will try to get a different IP next time.
Thanks very much!
