XF 1.2 Forbidden error when typing a certain string

    Hi guys,

    There's a certain string that produces "Forbidden You don't have permission to access forums/index.php on this server"

    The string is "glass videos"

    Without fail, trying post a message on my forums with that string included produces an error. And, for some reason, after receiving this error a few times, Apache mod_security will blacklist whatever IP the error is occuring on.

    Any thoughts?

    There must be some software on your server that is blacklisting your IPs and rejecting access if it sees that. You may want to contact your host.

    I figured it out (for anyone that might find this thread via Google). Apache mod_security is recognizing it as "ass video" and blacklisting the IP.
