Is mod_security, Suhosin or equivalent installed by default?

I have installed vBulletin 4.2.2 PL3 and I currently having some problems. When speaking to their support they said that it could be to do with either mod_security or Suhosin.

So are either of these installed by default?

Thanks in advance,

Neither mod_security nor Suhosin are installed by default. With the exception of our One-Click Applications, all of our droplets are barebones servers that allow you to set them up the way you’d like.
