For about a week or so, httpd has been crashing about once a day. In the "Log Messages" section of the cpanel service failure notification email, it lists a bunch of modsecurity hits in red. Nothing stands out about them, just the run of the mill malicious bots. Maybe only the quantity. There is about 50 listed.

It usually recovers on it's own. A manual apache restart will fix it too right away.

Wondering if anyone else is seeing anything like this or has any ideas?
