1. asl-lite -u says "package asl is not installed".
asl-lite is a subset of ASL, so it has the same update code used in ASL. This is expected, in future releases the plan is to have it check for asl-lite updates.
2. I used to use your Free rules, with the new rules the dates on some of my rule files appear to have changed
That is expected. ASL-Lite is a rule updater, and we release updates daily. Sometimes even multiple times a day depending on attack trends.
3. I'm getting this error "Rule execution error - PCRE limits exceeded (-8): (null)."
This is a limitation of your implementation of mod_security, atomic mod_security builds do not produce this either. You can either download our builds from here:
Or you will need to build it like we do with our RPM (http://www4.atomicorp.com/channels/source/mod_security/mod_security.spec see the %build section).
Or check the atomic forums to see what luck other users have had if you choose to use a third parties mod_security build.
Your best choice is to use our builds.
4. Why should I change my CPanel mod_Security config file?
Its incomplete and will not scan all types of attacks. We are security experts, all we do is think about ways of stopping the bad guys.
5. /usr/bin/modsec-clamscan.pl is not installed on the server.
Malware scanning is not included in the rules only subscription. ASL comes with malware upload scanning for HTTP, SSH, FTP and other protocols, including real time malware protection and much more. If you want malware upload protection, upgrade to ASL.
