modsecurity-apache 2.6.3-1ubuntu0.2 source package in Ubuntu
modsecurity-apache (2.6.3-1ubuntu0.2) precise-proposed; urgency=low * debian/mod-security.load: revert previous change, since an alternate solution has been agreed in the bug. * debian/mod-security.load: drop LoadFile directive entirely, and rely on the loader to resolve all required dependencies. This avoids the hardcoded path which fails on multiarch-enabled systems (LP: #988819). modsecurity-apache (2.6.3-1ubuntu0.1) precise-proposed; urgency=low * debian/mod-security.load: remove libxml2.so.2 path, since with multiarch it is always incorrect on i386 and amd64. Use no path and a corresponding apache2 change to use the standard dlopen search path in this case to allow the library to be found (LP: #988819). -- Robie Basak <email address hidden> Thu, 19 Jul 2012 11:33:40 +0000

Binary packages built by this source
- libapache-mod-security: Dummy transitional package
This package is provided to ease the updating of modsecurity to the new
package name. You may safely remove it.
- libapache2-modsecurity: Tighten web applications security for Apache
Modsecurity is an Apache module whose purpose is to tighten the Web
application security. Effectively, it is an intrusion detection and prevention
system for the web server.
At the moment its main features are:
* Audit log; store full request details in a separate file, including POST
* Request filtering; incoming requests can be analysed and offensive requests
can be rejected (or simply logged, if that is what you want). This feature
can be used to prevent many types of attacks (e.g. XSS attacks, SQL
injection, ...) and even allow you to run insecure applications on your
servers (if you have no other choice, of course).
In addition to this package the modsecurity-common package, which includes
documentation and configuration examples, will be installed.
