Just to throw the idea out there. Is it possible that such requests are 
merely red herrings? In other words, could those requests be distracting 
away from the actual problem?

Looking at the code at the id.txt file, all that does is provide output 
to the calling script that verifies certain characteristics of the 
server. So, there probably is something else going on. Of course, it 
also confirms that the target is vulnerable to that vector of attack.
