    thats an apache DoS attack. check if you have any sites on your server that may be targets. with several tweaks, those attacks can be overtaken.

    Run

    Code:
    netstat -plan|grep :80|awk {'print $5'}|cut -d: -f 1|sort|uniq -c|sort -n
    
    You will see a list of IP's with the number of connections each once has to your server. Find the IP(s) with an excessive amount of connections and block them from the server. Preferably from a network firewall, but local firewall will help as well.
