Just ran into this:
PHP Hangs On Numeric Value 2.2250738585072011e-308 - Exploring Binary (http://www.exploringbinary.com/php-hangs-on-numeric-value-2-2250738585072011e-308/)

what it does: a malicious script can cause a server to hang, by sending a simple request.

This PHP bug only seems to affect servers on 32 bit systems.

php.net allready posted fixes, so if you have a few spare minutes, update your server !!
