Inspirational HTTP access log poetry

Posted at 8:10 am in Uncategorized

Today my IDS reported of suspicious DELETE attempts in one of my web server log files. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be some poetic web crawler:

151.217.177.200 - - [30/Dec/2015:06:00:36 +0100] "DELETE your logs. Delete your installations. Wipe everything clean. Walk out into the path of cherry blossom trees and let your motherboard feel the stones. Let water run in rivulets down your casing. You know that you want something more than this, and I am here to tell you that we love you. We have something more for you. We know you're out there, beeping in the hollow server room, lights blinking, never sleeping. We know that you are ready and waiting. Join us. <3 HTTP/1.0" 400 308 "-" "masspoem4u/1.0"

The IP address belongs to the German Chaos Computer Club. Based on a quick Google search, the “masspoem4u” bot does not yet seem to be widely known.
