Atomicorp.com WAF Rules: Spam: Possible SEO or spamware content


This rules detects if a post contains content regarding search engine optimization.

False Positives

A false positive can occur when a website legitimately uses this type of content (an SEO website for example), or if there is an error in the patterns used to detect this type of spam. The rules contain a large library of known web applications and safe methods for using this content, such as administrative functions, and can detect known safe methods and ignore them. However it is possible for a new or custom application to do this in an unknown manner and incorrectly trigger this rule.

It is not recommended that you disable this rule if your site does not allow SEO content. If your site does allow this type of content, then you will want to disable this rule.

If your site does not allow SEO content, and you believe this is a false positive (it does not contain SEO content), please report this to our security team. Instructions to report false positives are detailed on the Reporting False Positives wiki page. If it is a false positive, we will fix the issue in the rules and get a release out to you promptly.
