Subject Re: Apache locks up

Sounds like a DoS vulnerability and given the age of the software in 
question the best suggestion that can be offered would be to upgrade to 
a minimum of Tomcat 4.1.x and Apache 1.3.x, However, you would be better 
off going to Tomcat 5.0.28 and Apache 2.0.52.

If you are going to need to do some rework to your servlets to get them 
running under Tomcat 5 I would suggest that you focus on getting them 
working under Tomcat 5.5.x and Java 1.5
