    One of my users noticed that searching for a specific keyword make the server respond with a 403 error.

    The website
    The word is "curl".

    I'm going to try to rebuild the search index... but I don't think this is the problem.

    It's a common problem for those using mod_security.


    See if using curl in a title is an issue.

    It's easier to run Xenforo with mod_security off, which is of course, less secure.

    The problem is probably from CURL in php.
