I have ASP.NET servers hosted in IIS, regularly i see bots attempting to scan my server searching for outdated versions of phpMyAdmin, mysql etc.
Currently these requests all return 404 because that's the legitimate response as
/phpMyAdmin-2.5.1/index.php certainly doesn't exist.
Is there something better that should be done?
My best thoughts, is there anyway to tell IIS to completely abandon a client connection without informing the client so basically it looks like the server just doesn't exist or is completely offline for those addresses?
