Cool.  I've only seen perl examples so far.  What interests me is the
possiblity of dermining the requestor's IP address from within a CGI
script.  Call the CGI script /default.ida and it will be the infected
system's fault that they ran the script :-).  You can claim that you
are generating the web page by "screen scraping" another web page (at
<ip>/scripts/root.exe of course).
