    Update 5:14pm Central US Time: Some customers encountered errors with our mod_security2 update to 2.9.3 and we have removed it from our mirrors to prevent further problems. There was a two-hour window where server owners may have upgraded. If you find a server experiencing problems with mod_security in that condition, one potential solution may be to downgrade the mod_security RPM to resolve the issue using the command below.

    yum downgrade ea-apache24-mod_security2
