hey,

i just looked into the security log of apache2triadcp and it got me thinking...

if an entry were to appear there, does that imply that someone recently hacked my server or did they attempt and fail?

most of the time it failed , because what is shown there are hacking requests logged as errors by apache , a successfull exploit most likely will not appear in any logs at all , save for a 200 access log entry that will apear inofensive to anyone but expert eyes.
