      Yes, I would need a list of all poorly configured webservers in the
      world with the name of their "special" error pages, e.g.

      "www.host1.com";"/404.html"
      "www.host2.com";"/404.aspx"
      "www.host3.com";"/404.php"
      "www.host4.com";"/notfound.html"
      "www.host5.com";"/not-found.html"
