PSA: mod_security v2 v. the Flash Uploader in WordPress

Recently, i’ve seen a lot of:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
<Files async-upload.php>
 SecFilterEngine Off
 SecFilterScanPOST Off
</Files>
</IfModule>

As the solution to the “My Flash Upload option no longer works with WordPress” — of course, if you’re using version 2 of mod-security — the correct way to completely disable mod-security for the flash uploader, as per the Migration Matrix page, this should be:

<IfModule mod_security2.c>
<Files async-upload.php>
 SecRuleEngine Off
 SecRequestBodyAccess Off
 SecResponseBodyAccess Off
</Files>
</IfModule>

It would appear there’s not a lot of mod-security v2 information as it relates to WordPress — and given issues with the handling of the async-upload.php have recently started appearing on the interschnitzel, I thought i’d put this here in case it is of assistance to anyone else.
