Attracting more than a half-million annual readers, this is the security community's go-to destination for technical breakdowns of the latest threats, critical vulnerability disclosures and cutting-edge research.

End of year post!

I thought a post to mark the end of the year would be in order. It has been a very good year for ModSecurity - it's gone from just an idea to a stable and useful product. The toughest part was not to figure out what functionality to add, but to bend the Apache into supporting it.

After the big marketing push in October (with the SecurityFocus article and the Slashdot link) our popularity rose significantly. We now have over 1500 downloads every month.

But if you think 2003 was good, wait to see what will happen in 2004. I have many things planned. Some of them will be the improvements to the existing software, but many will be completely new products. I wish you a very happy 2004 :)
