[Owasp-modsecurity-core-rule-set] Lua Script execution failed message

It seems as if you have enabled the experimental rules namely
modsecurity_crs_61_ip_forensics.conf. Without looking directly at the
code, it looks as if the particular rule is trying to do WHOIS lookup. My
advice would be that you might consider disabling the particular rules you
don¹t need. If you need these rules (or want them) I can certainly look
more closely at the LUA script and see where the problem might arise.
