An apache web server access weblog shows a request type "COOK" where POST or GET are normally found. Is such a request part of any known web-based site attacks?

As @WhiteWinterWolf mentioned, Pepoluan answered over here on ServerFault:

The COOK verb appears to be synonymous with the User-Agent string containing "Synapse". The term Synapse is a free TCP/IP library written in Pascal (see here: http://wiki.freepascal.org/Synapse#From_an_HTTP_server) that is used to create bots, scrapers and crawlers as well as other legitimate software.
