try basic attack:

kalau installation anda berjaya, anda akan mendapat error 403 :)

as you mentioned, rules from owasp has been used :) so dah tak perlu
modify apa2 untuk sql injection, RFI, remote command injection, xss.

but for spam comment, letak la captcha, hensem kot :)

P/S: koi orang pahang jugak! :P
