%00 is known as a "poison null byte" attack. "Response 200" is not what we want to see. System commands can be included after that line.

Check if you can see your page with this command after the domain part...
Easy way to prevent this is to include this line in the .htaccess file.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} proc\/self\/environ [OR]
I have been meaning to address this problem. Should 'Perfect Server' also have mod_security installed and enabled? Or can we include that RewriteCond on server level in the Apache config?

You can install mod_security in Debian with these commands...
apt-get install libapache-mod-security
a2enmod mod-security
/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload
