>From the log you posted, it looks like it's trying to attack your web
server with a buffer overflow. Probably this is a compromised Windows
machine, and the owner isn't aware it's doing this, but either way, you
should contact your ISP. Telia doesn't seem to be very different from
most larger ISPs, and they may not react quickly or at all. You could
also try using smbclient (part of the Samba port) to send a Windows
popup message to that machine.
