Hi, guys!
For a while I used for my whmcs setup composed by apache + mod_php as backend and nginx as reverse proxy.
I was thinking i'm safe until someone with few proxies succeed to open enough connections and apache eaten whole amount of RAM (2GB).
Any idea how to block this kind of vulnerability ? (pf limit or something simmilar)

Thank you!

You could try to rate limit the connection attempts. Or use HAProxy as a reverse proxy, that will give you much better control over what, when and how things are proxied.
