Project 4: Exploit Filtering with mod_security for Shared Hosting Environments

The open source web server module mod_security allows filtering of attacks on web hosting environments of any size. Lacking available rule sets and issuing too many false positives, the module has not been very popular to date.

The web hoster service SIWECOS is now offering such rule sets for free (as a result of last year’s Hackathon). This Hackathon project will be a workshop for hosters, rule set developers and the developers of mod_security for implementing firewalls in shared hosting scenarios.
