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.;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
<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>

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?
