Read the section "Protecting Server Files by Default" in the Apache
documentation at
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/security_tips.html#protectserverfiles

Hope that helps.

Hello, all.
I found that some malicious man browsed /etc/passwd file by httpd. So
I would like to block to see /etc/passwd file by nobody(http user)
permission. but as you know, any shell logging users should have read
permission.
So, is there any method to enable this?
I think that only one method that all users are some group member
except nobody. and only group members can read the /etc/passwd file,
right? but this work is so so hard at my system.
Also, I saw that some commercial host baed ips can do this.
any patch is available?

Thanks in advance and sorry for poor english.
