I've got a similar one that is just a bit more beefy and takes less
overhead to run than a one-time blast.  

Basically it does the same thing as yours, but instead of just opening
the file, it does a "tail -f" on it, then watches it for all sorts of
things, including virus/worm alerts.  It runs as root, and has the
ability to issue iptables commands to automatically shut down access to
a particular IP if it sees more connections than whatever limit I

The down-side of it, it has to be running all the time.  It will
reinitiate the tail process if someone kills it off or the apache log is
truncated/moved, but still does hog up two little processes 24/7.

Let me know off-list if you're interested:  (I will no
longer have access to the address I'm posting from now in about a week.)
