I'm running Apache 2.0.52 and I've been getting this problem quite a lot. It 
looks more like random attempts to cause buffer overflows to me, as the 
requests are coming from unexpected sources (not that many people know about my 
webserver and I know when the ones that do connect). However I am using No-
IP.com for dynamic DNS redirection.

>From what I could read in the bug activity it looks like this was meant to be 
fixed to stop a buffer overflow exploit, however I don't think it has been 
fixed.
I am running Apache on Windows XP SP1 behind an ADSL router and I am also 
running a firewall, but I can't stop attacks like these. I am looking at moving 
my server to a FreeBSD box, but I don't know if that will fix the problem.
