ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers which is employed to prevent attacks towards web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a particular website in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the moment it detects them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - as an illustration, trying to log in to a script administrator area unsuccessfully several times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a particular file that could result in accessing the website triggers a different rule, and so on. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls on the market and it'll protect even scripts which are not updated regularly as it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Very detailed data about each intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are considerably more comprehensive than the regular logs generated by the Apache server, so you can later examine them and determine if you need to take more measures so as to enhance the safety of your script-driven websites.
