[nycbug-talk] OT: Issues with FreeBSD & Apache

My Apache process on one box keeps dying (segmentation fault), and I have 
to restart it.

In /var/log/messages, I'm getting:

Feb 26 18:39:29 pluto suhosin[39552]: ALERT - linked list corrupt on 
efree() - heap corruption detected (attacker '70.x.x.x', file 


What are my risks here?  Is this just simply an overflow of some sort that 
I need to patch?  Is my system vulnerable?  I'm frankly not too familiar 
with this specific error/warning.

Thanks for any input,
