#122 new enhancement

Score based automated ip blocking

Reported by: pbuonora@… Owned by: rjl
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.1.0
Component: General Version: 1.0.0 RC5
Severity: normal Keywords:


It would be great to have a way to setup rules for automated ip blocking. An example would be to say if the server receives 10 messages from the same host scoring above 40 within 3 hours block that ip for 4 days.

The blocking you're describing is a job for a DNSBL package, e.g. rbldnsd. There are eventual plans to add this sort of thing to Maia 1.x.

  • Severity changed from normal to enhancement

In addition to the DNSBL, some sort of tarpitting ability could be joined with Maia, such as Spam Cannibal, to make Maia bite back. PLanned for post 1.0, but I'm itching to try it out. :)
