Active rule currently published.

Alert Message

Atomicorp.com WAF Rules: Spam: Pharmacy


This rule detects posts weight loss content. Some sites restrict this type of content either to prevent spamming or for legal reasons. If your site allows this type of content, disable this rule.

The procedure for disabling rules is documented on the follow page: Mod_security#Disable_a_Mod_security_rule_.28or_rules.29_for_all_applications_in_a_single_domain

False Positives

A false positive can occur when sites allow this content. The rules contain a large library of known administrative functions that would need to use this content (such as blocking this content, or adding this content to a website). The rules deliberately do not allow non-administrative users, such as forum or blog thread users to post this type of content. This rule is designed to prevent those types of users from posting this type of content (not admins).

If you know that this action was purely administrative, and not a regular user, please report this as a false positive.

If you believe this is a false positive (that the content does not contain terms about weight loss), 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.
