Unexpected Requests in App Logs
When you expose an app to the Internet using HTTP(S) Endpoints with External Placement will likely receive traffic from sources other than your intended users.
Some of this traffic may make requests for non-existent or non-sensical resources.
This is normal on the Internet, and there are various reasons it might happen:
- An attacker is fingerprinting you
- An attacker is probing you for vulnerabilities
- A spammer is trying to get you to visit their site
- Someone is mistakenly sending traffic to you
This traffic is usually harmless as long as your app does not expose major unpatched vulnerabilities.
So, the best thing you can do is to take a proactive security posture that includes secure code development practices, regular security assessment of your apps, and regular patching.
