Hello Christian and team,

Having recently tried out ModSecurity, it appears that lower paranoia levels (Basic, PL1, PL2, PL3) are not fully blocking all flavors of XSS and SQL injection.

Encoded XSS attacks are bypassing the CRS rules. Example below:

Similarly for SQLi, the below pattern is getting through.


When the Paranoia Level is set to PL4, the encoded XSS attack is blocked, however it crashes the application. With PL4, SQLi attack reported by the vulnerability scanner above, is still not blocked.

Is it possible to selectively add custom rules (for encoded XSS attacks) to the basic level or other lower levels that do not adversely impact the application?

Hi there,

Please save the date of our first Community Summit: July 4, 2018, at 4pm
in London.


This is meant to be a get-together of the community. We want to learn about
you and how you use CRS in your setups - and we want to talk with you about
the road map for the project and various feature requests.

The date is the night before AppSecEU. So you can join this get-together on
Wednesday and then attend AppSec EU on Thursday / Friday.

Please do consider to join us when Chaim, Walter and I meet for the first
time face2face. :)
