None of the recent attacks were on HTTP server software.  From what I've
read, they were through a sniffed password, a hole in rsyncd, and a linux
kernel flaw.

This doesn't mean, of course, that flaws in apache are not possible.  But
your log clearly shows an IIS attack, so there is no need to worry.
