[Seaside] ProxyPass warning

Over the past few days, my Apache server has been flooded with
requests for sites other than my own, such as 'http://spam.gmx.pl/
px.php'. Since I had enabled proxy requests without restricting
access, Apache happily fetched pages from the other sites and
returned them. In Mac OS/X Server, checking 'Control Access To Proxy'
and entering 'localhost' into the allowed domain results in the
following code in httpd.conf.
#NoCache a_domain.com another_domain.edu joes.garage_sale.com
Deny from all
Allow from localhost
This doesn't prevent the requests (still being hit with more than one
request/second), but does stop your machine from delivering the
requested remote page (returns a 403 error status code). There may be
other ways to prevent usage of your bandwidth, but the deny all/allow
localhost seems to be effective.
