    Greetings,

    I get this entry several times per day for a url like:

    Can someone tell me if I should be worried? 'Critical' really gets my knickers in a twist.

    Hi,

    You do not need to be worried.
    The request has been blocked and the "critical" label is describing the "possible" severity of the attack.

    Ronald.

    Thanks for the reply and the relief ;)

    Can you tell me what this bot (I presume) is and should I be blocking it with some kind of rule (in addition to mod_security)?
