Fairly simply request,


HTTP Slow attacks are, for any webhoster, a serious issue.

Basically a single laptop on a poor wifi connection now has the power to cause DoS "Denial of Service" on your entire webserver. Though configuration of apache can go a long way, this will not be enough for everyone. The software to cause these slowattacks is very easy to find and even has a project on google code. http://code.google.com/p/slowhttptest/


Some security sites recommend this module as a way to help fend off HTTP slow attacks.

As part of the easy/manageability of Cpanel May I suggest you include this module in easyapache and add the corresponding 3 directives to the global apache to assist in offering a solution to such attacks

Administrators may use mod_qos to protect against these kinds of attacks. EasyApache has provided mod_qos for some time.
