Nginx error log spam: connicon.cgi not found



  • I'm getting the following error message in the nginx and system error logs:

    2017/03/24 14:52:55 [error] 93654#100248: *7 open() "/usr/local/www/cgi-bin/MANGA/connicon.cgi" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: 10.10.1.172, server: , request: "GET /cgi-bin/MANGA/connicon.cgi?type=favicon HTTP/1.1", host: "10.10.1.1"

    Does anyone else have this problem?  Does anyone have an idea how to shut it off as it's annoying.  The above ip address is the firewall itself.

    I'm running version 2.3.3-RELEASE-p1

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Look again at the request.
    It comes in on 10.10.1.1. I guess you know who that is. Again : the request comes IN on that interface from 'some one'.
    Easy solution => take out the network cable on that interface …. and you will notice that the requests stop ... ;)

    Because : some LAN device is hammering these request into your pfSense. Locate this device, shut it down. Case closed :)



  • Avast antivirus/firewall is (was?) notorious for doing that kind of probes on the gateway to discover potentially vulnerable versions of the device firmware. Worth checking. The other likely possibility is that you have a malware/virus running on that LAN host.

    Sorry, I've been away for a while.

    The .172 address is my PC, and the .1 address is the firewall.

    As said above, it has nothing to do with pfSense. The request is coming from your PC.
