Someone is GETting another site through my server.

Posted 04 December 2011 - 04:45 PM

Hi, all. I was looking at my server logs (Apache server created by installing CollabNet Subversion Edge) and saw this entry:
221.212.30.179 - - [04/Dec/2011:06:01:50 -0500] "GET http://www.sciencedirect.com/ HTTP/1.1" 200 48

The IP is Chinese, and I have access to some sciencedirect articles on my computer. (I'm at a university.)
Is this person getting access to another website as my computer? If so, can I stop this?
Cheers,
MMTrebuchet

Additional info: Sending this request by telnetting into my server gives my site if I specify to use HTTP/1.0. So it seems that the server drops the http://www.sciencedirect.com bit out altogether, although I couldn't use telnet to send an HTTP/1.1 request.
> telnet localhost 80
    > GET http://www.sciencedirect.com/ HTTP/1.0
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 05 Dec 2011 01:23:48 GMT
Server: Apache
Last-Modified: Thu, 08 Sep 2011 21:30:42 GMT
ETag: "3000000003874-30-4ac74c5daab68"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 48
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

<html><body><h1>Hello, world!</h1></body></html>

Connection to host lost.



So it seems nothing bad is happening, unless HTTP/1.1 is very different. I'm not too clear on what the specification changed, so I guess it's possible.

sciencedirect.com is your domain for your server? Then when someone types that into their webbrowser, you will see that in your logs

The users IP, they want to GET the index page for http://www.sciencedirect.com/, your server responed OK - 200 status code, and the bytes sent was 48
