MODSEC-410: Hello,

Has anyone come across this form of an error at all?

collections_remove_stale: Failed deleting collection (name "ip", key ""): Internal error

What happens is the IP's get listed in CSF but are permanent bans, they are never released.

This is is setup to stop Joomla and Wordpress bruteforce attacks, though seemingly there is a glitch somewhere along the lines.

bpinto: Hello,

This is a very old topic. Shouldn't be a big issue, for some reason sometimes apr_delete() function fail to delete a sdbm entry, but it is deleted in a another chance.

I already opened a ticket for APR devel guys to investigate.



sparrow-sean: Hello Breno,

Is there any update on this matter?
