Default Apache warns Web server admins of DoS attack tool

Anyone have any idea how soon RHEL and CentOS will be releasing the patch
package?

Excerpt:
Computerworld - 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.
