Quoting httpd 2.2 security page:

  moderate: mod_proxy_ajp DoS CVE-2010-0408

  mod_proxy_ajp would return the wrong status code if it encountered an
  error causing a backend server to be put into an error state until the
  retry timeout expired. A remote attacker could send malicious requests
  to trigger this issue, resulting in a denial of service.
