I’ve been working even harder to make my ModSecurity ruleset as strong as possible without causing too many false positives. With the current git master I’m sure I can reject most of the spam sources before they hit at all… but.
But I’m not sure if I made it a bit too strong. So please, leave a comment on this post, with as many browsers as you usually use, and if it doesn’t work, drop me an email with your browser’s version (and if you can give me an IP address it’ll be easier to find it in the logs).
Testing using w3m on Linux. w3m is my fallback when I don’t have a GUI or GUI browser on the machine I need to browse from. (If, for example, I can’t just paste a URI to wget…)

I can’t access your site with Opera on my mobile phone since a couple of weeks now. User Agent is “HTC_Touch_Pro2_T7373 Opera/9.7 (Windows NT 5.1; U; de)”
I think the SecRule in line 38 of “flameeyes_60_fake_browsers.conf”:https://github.com/Flameeye… is responsible for my problem: “^.+opera[ /][0-9]” -> “Fake Opera browser (not starting with Opera)”

Looks odd on Arora on Gentoo…Click name for link.
Thanks to everybody! Keep the comments coming! :)germantoo → thanks, yes that was the problem, it should be all fine now; funky, Opera Mini is very different from one device to the next, so everybody who has an Opera Mini at hand are definitely welcome to come posting here!moesasji → Epiphany is indeed not behaving like other WebKit browsers and sends very few headers: no Accept-Language on requests; I had to explicitly whitelist it.richard77 → Thanks! Looks like Accept-Language in Firefox is optional, so I had to avoid that validation… it upsets me a bit honestly, but I’ll live with that for now.Arora → “Bogus Browser of the Year” award goes to Arora indeed… it’s not even a matter of Accept-Language like for Epiphany or Firefox, which are optional on protocol level… Arora doesn’t send the *Accept* header, which is required by the protocol. But it does so only when requesting images, it does send the *Accept* header when requesting the pages, stylesheets and, I guess, scripts. I’m not sure if I want to whitelist such a stupid behaviour.
one would use a “honey-pot” to test this,firefox 3.6.13 Gentoo
A honeypot wouldn’t give me any information about false positives, which is what I’m interested in right now 🙂
DolphinHD from archos tablet and lg optimus one OK
*moesasji → Epiphany is indeed not behaving like other WebKit browsers and sends very few headers: no Accept-Language on requests; I had to explicitly whitelist it.*Retrying with Epiphany still fails with an “access forbidden” message?
