ModSecurity Web Application Firewall - Commercial Rules Update (2)

We have released new commercial rules for ModSecurity Web Application Firewall (WAF) v2.9 and above. These rules' purpose is to protect against new emerging attacks that target vulnerabilities in public software.

For this release, we are highlighting virtual patches for PHP 5.x/7.x WDDX Out of Bounds Information Disclosure (CVE-2017-11145) and PHP <=5.6.31 WDDX Invalid free DoS (CVE-2017-11143) vulnerabilities. These issues could allow an attacker to achieve a DoS or information disclosure condition for recent versions of PHP in web applications while dealing with maliciously crafted wddx XML packets.

ModSecurity Rules from Trustwave® SpiderLabs® include custom virtual patches for public vulnerabilities.
