Noticed two interesting hits in the http://www.tedroche.com web server log today:

I’d guess that the first is a call to the Outlook Web Service for exchange, and the second a probe to see if there’s an MSOffice or Office Web Parts installation on the machine, each presumably exploiting a Microsoft security problem.
The address of the inquirer is located in the Phillipines. I don’t really know enough to determine if that is a compromised machine, or if that is the location of the malicious attack. You’d presume they’d hide themselves, but this isn’t my specialty. I just ban the IP addresses I see.
