    Developers of the Apache open-source project today warned users of the popular Web server software that a denial-of-service (DoS) tool is circulating that exploits a bug in the program. The tool, called "Apache Killer," showed up last Friday in a post to the "Full Disclosure" security mailing list.

    Today, the Apache project acknowledged the vulnerability that the attack tool exploits, and said it would release a fix for Apache 2.0 and 2.2 in the next 48 hours.
