Subject DoS on POSTS
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2001 03:30:44 GMT
It seems that there is a possibility for DoS on Apache servers
when doing a POST.  On search.apache.org, I can send the following
request:

PUT / HTTP/1.1
Host: search.apache.org:80
Content-Length: 1000
<newline here>

And just let it sit there forever.  search.apache.org is running 2.0.24,
and I'm running out of CVS and seeing the same behaviour.  Seems bogus to me.
