"extra web security"

DH Panel writes “Many common attacks that can compromise your website will be blocked by this option.” but gives no detail. Any one know what defences this DH mod_security implementation includes?

Have you tried googling for it, or looking into the Apache (web server) documentation about it? Here are some pointers:

Thanks, but no info there on DH’s implementation AFAICT.
