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).
