ModSecurity (mod_security) Packages Now Available
ModSecurity (mod_security) 2.1.2 has been added to my Yum Repository at the request of multiple users. ModSecurity is a Web Application Firewall that can help to minimize the threat from attacks such as SQL injections, protocol violations, and other common attacks. The standard configuration is courtesy of the ModSecurity Core Rules and will do a pretty good job of protecting your site from all of the script-kiddies out there (although that's no excuse for not keeping your system up to date).
This package is available in both 32-bit & 64-bit variants for RHEL and CentOS 4 & 5. Users of my Yum Repository can run 'yum install mod_security', followed by 'service httpd restart', and be off.
