Apache HTTP Server contains a vulnerability in its shared memory 
scoreboard. Attackers who can execute commands under the Apache
UID can either send a (SIGUSR1) signal to any process as root, in 
most cases killing the process, or launch a local denial of service (DoS)
attack.

emerge rsync
emerge apache
emerge clean
