Hi.

 

I help run a network, and have noticed a number of users devices hitting strange URLs - one for example is pasted below. All appear in the same format with a static IP and an encoded path. 

 

http://198.11.189.91/X%8E%5Ci%DF%1E%90%B4%A6%E4%02%5B%A3%D5%AC%A5%8C%11%BCOm%AB%0C%B5%B6%E1%08:%A5;h%B9%B2%06%BE%O%12i%FD%A6%87%D6%D3

 

For all of the URLs I've checked, they all seem to be operating a web server on port 2080, which is "Powered by wjas". I haven't found any useful information about this sort of web server

# curl http://198.11.189.91
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html>
<head><title>403 Forbidden</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<h1>403 Forbidden</h1>
<p>You don't have permission to access the URL on this server. Sorry for the inconvenience.<br/>
Please report this message and include the following information to us.<br/>
Thank you very much!</p>
<table>
<tr>
<td>URL:</td>
<td>http://198.11.189.91:2080/</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Server:</td>
<td>aserver010103188140.et2</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Date:</td>
<td>2016/09/20 19:33:57</td>
</tr>
</table>
<hr/>Powered by wjas</body>
</html>

Does anyone have any information about what type of server these clients are connecting to, or what the data is in the encoded string, or what I should be looking out for on the client machines?
