Apache 2.0.59 (Commodore C64) 0_o

Today, while I'm reading some IT news, I've found a funny one ;).

Someone noticed, that an important e-shop is running its core business application on very old computers.

An extract from netcraft could clarify how old are these machines:


unknown Apache 2.0.59 (Oric Dragon32) 89.107.41.30
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (ZX Spectrum 48k (Rubber Keys)) 89.107.41.3
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (Commodore C64) 89.107.41.30
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (CBM PET) 89.107.41.30
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (MSX Toshiba HX-10) 89.107.41.30
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (Commodore C64) 89.107.41.30
unknown Apache 2.0.59 (ZX Spectrum 48k (Rubber Keys)) 89.107.41.30

One guy of ebuyer crew explains that some HTTP strings was modified in order to prevent some low level lamer attacks.

The mistery was unveiled ;)
