I think you will find the official information in the Apache documentation.
I would explain to that ISP that mod_security is misconfigured - it simply
filters the submitted data to the webserver (this affects other
applications on it as well, i.e. you will not be able to submit  "tftp
config" to a simple guest book either). The solution here is to fix the
configuration of mod_security (which I do not know personally).
Just make him clear that filtering requests at that point of processing is
pointless, at least with such hard blocking.

Kind regards,
