I was getting a lot of these queries:

That’s 10 such queries in ten seconds… That’s, ummm, a lot. It’s just script kiddies looking for something to exploit. I’m tiring of seeing so much crap in my error logs. What do to about it…. Hmmm, let’s redirect them elsewhere, say here, to this article for example. How do I do that? With this Apache mod_rewrite rule:

RewriteRule modules/coppermine      http://news.freshports.org/2006/11/09/coppermining/ [R=permanent]

Similary for these queries:

Those are also redirected to this URL.

Enjoy.
