Re: What HTTP exploit?

  • From: Bob Martin

The real irony is that it doesn't bother Apache running on NT :)

In all fairness, somewhere along the line there was a patch for this. All my Apache servers do is put "request failed: URI too long" in the error log. Even without the fix it really wasn't anything more than a nuisance. Killing off one child process had no effect on valid sessions or the parent process.

The only side effect is they fill my dmesg logs with
signal 11's from apache crashing.
    

   Am I the only one that sees the irony that Apache seg faults from an
attack aimed at Msoft?!
