How to verify that mod_security is working.

June 9, 2010 at 2:40 pm (Uncategorized) ()

Did you just install mod_security or restart apache?

Do you want to make sure that mod_security is working? Well, if you have installed the CRS, then you are in luck! Here is a simple way to test operation.

First, set up a tail -f on whatever file you have mod_security logging violations/alerts to.

Next, from another linux box that has wget installed, run this command:
wget -O – -U “webtrends security analyzer”

Finally, back in the audit log, you should see an alert logged. This is because the user agent “webtrends securiy analyzer” is blocked by CRS.

    But if these modes of saving your house from foreclosure would
    not work out, then you may have to sell the house yourself to save
    your credit score and not have your house sold for much less than its value.
    The curb appeal of your house becomes more important, especially when you are selling
    it. Before searching for e – Bay wholesale products it is wise to consider exactly what sort of
    items you wish to sell.
