ModSecurity WAF Rules Report

Acunetix 360 scans your system to identify vulnerabilities that may have a critical or high severity level. If you cannot fix these vulnerabilities immediately, attackers can exploit them and take control of your website. Acunetix 360 helps prevent attackers from exploiting these vulnerable URLs in your system by allowing you to export rules for ModSecurity Web Application Firewall (WAF).

By generating Acunetix 360’s findings as ModSecurity WAF Rules:

  • You can immediately block requests to a resource if the requests contain malicious payloads that would exploit it
  • Developers gain time in fixing these vulnerable points
  • Your system remains secure until a fix is found and patched

Please note that you cannot cover all security flaws by blocking access to a specific resource using a web application firewall. For example, application source code disclosure cannot be exported as a ModSecurity WAF rule.
