Any thoughts?

Hi @aspeak,

Check your server’s logs; there should be details logged on what triggered dotDefender, probably with that ID included in the log entry. I’m not familiar with dotDefender but we’ve had several similar inquiries about Apache’s mod_security; generally there’s a false positive triggered due to an overzealous ruleset.
