WP cannot save post if the word VARCHAR() exists in post

I am using wordpress 2.8.6 When I try to save or edit a post that contains the exact word VARCHAR() in all uppercase letters wp-admin/post.php fails to save and comes up with an empty page. I tried to start a new post containing only the word VARCHAR() and it breaks. using lowercase varchar() or VARCHAR () or VARCHAR is ok. The problem seems to be caused only by VARCHAR(.

I have a wordpress installation with default theme and no plugins.

It's probably a mod_security setting on your server, meant to prevent posts of SQL injections.

Talk to your host. This is not a WordPress issue.

mental note: add mod_security to the health-check plugin...
