    I'm trying to block so the following command/address can't be run but whithout blocking
    to much som OK commands can be run.


    I mod security I have added this:

    SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST "=http//"
    SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST "d=http"
    SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST "admin_events.php?CONFIG_EXT"
    SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST "inc_dir=http"
    SecFilter "admin_events.php?CONFIG_EXT"
    SecFilter "d=http"
    SecFilter "inc_dir=http"

    The strange thing is if I add manually for example in address field:


    //Then I get forbidden, mod_sec blocks it.
    But none of the above rules work when it's in the adress as above/top - something
    makes a difference in that url cause the page is viewable and you can send email.
    It's a mailer scripts being loaded from another server.

    Even if I chmod 000 the admin_events.php - I can load the page !!
    I guess it's because it's really not the file you're loading, it's the external file but
    hm... it should be forbidden anyway I think.

    But the rules - anyone know how to block it alright ?
