Overview for rules released by Trustwave SpiderLabs in January for ModSecurity Commercial Rules package. The rules are available for versions 2.9.x and 3.x of ModSecurity.
ModSecurity Commercial Rules detect attacks or classes of attacks on web applications and their components as well as provide virtual patches for public vulnerabilities.
* NOTE: For vBulletin vulnerability CVE-2019-16759 two rules have been added: the “Strict” version of the rule will provide full protection against this CVE but may prevent use of some vBulletin features. The “Less Strict” version of the rule should not hinder functionality and still provide decent protection, but full protection against attacks exploiting this CVE when using this version of the rule cannot be guaranteed due to the specifics of this vulnerability.
How to Update
All the rules released this month are available for download and can be configured using the ModSecurity Dashboard. The rules are associated with the default profile and enabled for all licensed servers. To verify the rules were successfully downloaded by ModSecurity, log in to the ModSecurity Dashboard and verify the server "Last seen" date, which indicates the last successful download for the specified server.
