The latest version of the ModSecurity 2.6 has new directives called the SecReadStateLimit and SecWriteStateLimit.

The attack scenario raised by slow HTTP POST attack is related to web server software (Apache, IIS, SunONE, etc...) and can not be directly mitigated by the application code. In the blog post, we will highlight the two main varieties of slow HTTP attacks - slow request headers and slow request bodies. We will then provide some new mitigation options for the Apache web server platform with ModSecurity.
