Hello everyone,
I am pleased to announce the release of the OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set
(CRS) v2.1.2.  This is a significant update as we have added a couple very
important capabilities (some of which we discussed last week at the Global
Summit ­ WAF Mitigations for XSS).

Version 2.1.2 - 02/17/2011

- Added experimental real-time application profiling ruleset.
- Added experimental Lua script for profiling the # of page scripts,
iframes, etc..
  which will help to identify successful XSS attacks and planting of malware
- Added new CSRF detection rule which will trigger if a subsequent request
comes too
  quickly (need to use the Ignore Static Content rules).

Bug Fixes:
- Added missing " in the skipAfter SecAction in the CC Detection rule set
