Subject [users@httpd] Possible symptoms of a web DOS attack
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2005 18:41:53 GMT
Hi,

We've had a couple of instances in the past week where CPU load average on
the server running apache was up at 60 when it normally stays at a nice
healthy 1 to 2.  In each case, bringing down the apache server brought the
load down.  We're also running PHP on the server but register_globals is off
and safe_mode on.  I'm runnign apache httpd-2.0.47.  Is there any chance I've
got a hacker exploiting some DOS vulnerability?

Thanks.
