Announcing mod_security rules database!

Over the past few days, I have been building a PHP system that stores mod_security rules in a convenient format that is easily downloadable via wget, and other methods. This database also has an aggressiveness classification system, which allows rules that may break some PHP scripts to be placed in more aggressive categories. Users can then download which ever rule category they wish. This rule database can be submitted to by anyone, and needs to be adminned properly.

At the moment, I am the only admin, and when I go back to uni, it will be impossible to do it by myself. This could be a real benefit to the community, and I am appealing for admins to lend their time to adminning this database. It's all done through a nice web interface.

Take a look:

If you wish to become an admin, please email me at [email protected] with the following details:

Your name and stuff
E-mail address
A bit about yourself, and your history with mod_security.

Admins must be trust worthy, responsible people, as this could be used VERY widely to help secure servers. Please only email me if you have extensive experience with mod_sec, and know the syntax fairly well.

Thanks very much

Got your site book marked. Been looking for something like that for awhile, and will be spreading the word. :) Goodluck on it,
