some permission problem?

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.
