Something strange in my logs

I am in the process of transferring my files from my old website to my
new website (I am putting up a shopping cart and am adding it one
section at a time). The old site has links to the new site and any
pages or links not yet transferred to the new site go to a customized
404 page directing them back to the old site.

I was looking at the new site's logs today and saw something that I
have never seen before. Here is a very small section of it:

HTTP/1.0" 200 8107 "-" "Googlebot/2.1
(+ )" - - [26/Jun/2004:03:57:35 -0400] "SEARCH

This goes on for many lines then it turns to this for many lines:


ending with this:

0\x90\x90\x90" 414 341 "-" "-"

This section is in the middle of today's log and then the log goes on

Has anyone seen anything like this before? Does anyone think that it
has anything to do with all the 404 errors that the new site has while
we're going through the transition? Could it have anything to do with
the shopping cart and my new secure section?

 I'm worried that the new site is not being crawled properly and I'll
lose rank in Google.

Thanks for any insight that anyone has about this.

looks like a try to exploit some bug on some servers ... resolvs to, which is
not google - so don't mind.
