May 18, 2006 @ 06:28:32

Our first reaction is to pull the plug, analyze, and rebuild a secure and scalable solution. But pulling the plug is usually not an option. If a company relies on an application for leads or sales, they probably can't afford to shut it down for any length of time. Under these circumstances, triage is usually the best one can hope for.

The post goes on to detail what mod_security is and how it can help - including how to enable it, Apache directives to configure it, and some examples of filter settings to apply.
