It looks like some sort of bot bug to me. The IP looks genuine. The
request would have been harmless as far as Interchange was concerned.
I don't know whether you trimmed the log message or whether your
Interchange version is just old, but you should have found the following
in your global error.log file:
Security violation -- scripting character in page name
'+ tprepend + l[ top_PAGE ] +'.
Interchange saw the "[" character in the URI and refused to handle the
If you had a violation page then that would have been returned. In your
case, an "internal server error" message would have been returned instead.
