Hi Varnish has made an incredible difference to my project that was
struggling under heavy load I want to try to understand how to make some
Custom rules to put into Varnish Security Firewall

I still have loosers scanning my web sites with like
<http://website.com/index.php?option=com_user&task=register> &task=register

that are having a random go at breaking into Joomla or Worpress that I have
neither of so they just waste my bandwidth


I can't find much info on VSF out there and the forum is closed to posting
can you help me?


As I understand it I would make a custom rule like


If I wanted to detect that Signature, Id need to make something like


# File myrules.vcf

sub vcl_recv {

if (the URL requested contains "?option=com_user&task=register") {

Tell him to bugger off }



Can you please show me how to do something like that?
