The risk depends on Apache, since that's the daemon answering the phone
when someone calls in on port 80.

Just make sure you're using the latest version of Apache (1.3.33, if you
want the 1.x version, or 2.0.52, if you want the 2.x version).  Some
earlier versions are vulnerable.  As long as Apache is secure, port 80
can be open.
