With the recent addition of logging capabilities of requests that had a match with one of the rule sets, there is now an option to:


  1. See the full request that had a match with the rule ID.
  2. Understand the attack type that relates to the rule ID.
  3. Remove specific rule ID from the rule set in the case it generates false positives.

  • That CSV file doesn't exist anymore. Can somebody please update this post, with an updates link to the CSV file ASAP.





  • Thanks Chase, can we please keep on top of the content in the csv file. I'm sure the rules being exploited are changing very frequently meaning that this document needs to follow suit?

  • For the fact that my company pays a subscription to F5 for this WAF Marketplace rule, I think I'm more than within my rights to be asking for this.

  •   The team responsible for this does maintain the file, in this particular case the file had an invalid URL due to our recent migration. The file is now part of the article moving forward and will stay current by the team that manages the AWS subscription service.

  • Ok, thanks for addressing this Chase. No doubt I will be coming back to this document frequently.





  • It seems the attached file is corrupted. Could you please re-upload the file?
