Network Dweebs Corporation writes "A new Apache DoS mod, called mod_dosevasive (short for dos evasive maneuvers) is now available for Apache 1.3. This new module gives Apache the ability to deny (403) web page retrieval from clients requesting more than one or two pages per second, and helps protect bandwidth and system resources in the event of a single-system or distributed request-based DoS attack. This freely distributable, open-source mod can be found at http://www.networkdweebs.com/stuff/security.html"
