    Hi There,

    I am setting up the blog part of our website and BPS is blocking these posts. After setting it up, we started to see a lot of Security Log Alerts – Event Code: BFHS, a lot of them are empty but some are legit blog posts. We are using jetpack to share these posts on social media. This is the alert:

    [403 GET Request: 16/10/2017 - 11:52 am]

    Hopefully you have a easy solution for it

    Thanks for looking into it

    The User Agent contains the string “java”.  Do the steps below to whitelist “java” in the User Agent string.

    1. Copy the BPS Query String Exploits code below (the “java” user agent has already been removed in the code below) to this BPS Root Custom Code text box: CUSTOM CODE BPSQSE BPS QUERY STRING EXPLOITS: Modify Query String Exploit code here 
    2. Click the Save Root Custom Code button.
    3. Go to the BPS Security Modes page and click the Root Folder BulletProof Mode Activate button.

    # BEGIN BPSQSE BPS QUERY STRING EXPLOITS
    # The libwww-perl User Agent is forbidden - Many bad bots use libwww-perl modules, but some good bots use it too.
    # Good sites such as W3C use it for their W3C-LinkChecker.
    # Use BPS Custom Code to add or remove user agents temporarily or permanently from the
    # User Agent filters directly below or to modify/edit/change any of the other security code rules below.

    I had a similar code there but I guess the java part was there. This action lead to this a 403 Forbidden Error Page w/ Security Log Alert

    The Custom Code 403 error problem sounds like a common known Mod Security issue > https://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/mod-security-common-known-problems/ Try logging into your web host control panel and disable Mod Security.
