    Hey there!  I wouldn't expect ModSecurity to do much of anything to stop a DoS.  ModSecurity is a Web Application Firewall, so it tries to block certain content from being sent through the webserver, but doesn't protect the server from DoS-like activity.

    If the DoS is smaller in scale you may be able to use a tool like mod_evasive to help block some of those connections:

    If the DoS is larger, you may need to look into third-party tools, such as external hardware firewalls or Cloudflare.
