    Hi,

    I have setup cpanel server recently. There is no domain hosted on it and I see the following errors in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    root@server01 [~/SOFTWARE-DOWNLOADS]# tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log | grep headers
    [Fri May 23 03:56:14 2008] [error] [client 88.240.242.204] request failed: error reading the headers

    [Fri May 23 03:56:14 2008] [error] [client 70.130.188.105] request failed: error reading the headers


    In WHM apache status I see the folllowing:

    Is this some kind of attack? There are tons of such requests.
