I'm having a problem with someone attacking one of my websites. The attacks come from completely random IP addresses and I have been fighting it for 2 weeks. I block all the addresses for about 2-3 hours each night which stops the attack until the next day when it starts up again from completely new addresses.

Thats correct. Web DOS protection via mod_security is a losing proposition, even when its possible. The damage is already done - apache has already done the work, so even if you could detect it there (which isnt ideal) its too late to do enough about it. So, to stop these kinds of issues, you want to catch it sooner, so we we use other tools to do that.
