ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers that is used to stop attacks against web applications. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a specific site in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts as soon as it identifies them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to do this - as an illustration, attempting to log in to a script administration area without success a few times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file that could result in accessing the Internet site triggers a different rule, and so on. ModSecurity is one of the best firewalls available on the market and it will protect even scripts which aren't updated regularly because it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Incredibly thorough info about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are considerably more specific than the conventional logs provided by the Apache server, so you could later analyze them and determine if you need to take extra measures in order to improve the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
