bad and rare requests
I was setting up my DO ubuntu 20 server with Django, then I ran python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000, just to test if everything was going well. But I noticed that some bad requests were being requested by some very rare domains, and the worst is that they were asking to add them to the ALLOWED_HOST.
These are the bad and rare requests:
Invalid HTTPHOST header: ‘m8.tehran.monster’. You may need to add 'm8.tehran.monster’ to ALLOWEDHOSTS.
Bad Request: /
[09/Jul/2020 16:53:25] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 400 63763
Invalid HTTPHOST header: 'f27.adminn.damnserver.com’. You may need to add 'f27.adminn.damnserver.com’ to ALLOWEDHOSTS.
Then, I changed my settings.DEBUG to False, set a new secret_key and put the server into action again (python manage.py runserver…). This time these were the requests the server received:
[09/Jul/2020 17:23:24] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 400 143
[09/Jul/2020 17:26:12] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 400 143
Could anyone explain to me what was happening?
Thank you very much
