Mod Anti Tamper for Apache 2

AntiTamper is an Apache 2.x module that could be used to prevent some sort of url and cookie tampering.
Specifically, AT could stop a lot of those malicious bots that take advantage from search engines.
Moreover, attack techniques like Http Response Splitting and session hijacking/fixation will be mitigated.
For a quick and dirty start go to examples/README.
Is important to notice that mod_anti_tamper is not an alternative to mod_security, which is more exaustive and useful for all web situations.
AT could be a complement to mod_security.

passwords sniffed (read CMS & Co.).
This is a way to avoid the passage of passwords from a user login html form
on an insecure channel.
An easy way to improve your users' security for ready-to-use (or not) CMSs.
