    I've been informed that using Apache TRACE/TRACK method is can cause security issues. How does one disable this, couldn't find anything in the httpd.conf file referencing this. We running Apache 2.2.10 w/latest Stable Cpanel.

    Thx's

    mod_security will help in this instance, here is a rule that will do it

    Code:
    # deny TRACE method
    SecRule REQUEST_METHOD "trac(?:e|k)" \
    	"phase:1,t:lowercase,id:340002,rev:2,severity:2,msg:'TRACE/TRACK method denied'"
