Drop connection when IP is in DNS Blacklist - make official

Post by dalewood » Fri Jun 30, 2006 9:41 pm

I found in this forum the registry setting to allow a connection to drop if it is found in a DNS Blacklist.

My suggestion is to please enable this function through the user interface.

I have found than most any change I make in the user interface, in SMTP connector, causes the registry setting to revert back to 1 or the normal mode of operation.

This feature is very handy and really should be made "official" or externalized.

Thanks much...Dale...

Another added to feature to this same functionality would be the ability to Auto-Ban and IP address found on a DNS balcklist after so many attempts to send.

I am seeing alot of spammers that connect as such;

ME-I0101 (Pass all previous tests, and good "TO" address)
ME-E0113 (Found in DNS Block List)
ME-I0070 (Graceful Close by remote client)

Then the remote client repeats the process.

I believe after 3 or 4 of these cycles it is pretty apparent that they are attempting a brute force entry and should be able to be banned outright.

Just my two cents worth.

I agree.

It would also be nicie if the ability to drop a connection immedately would also apply if you require the sender to have a a reverse DNS pointer (i.e. PTR). For some reason the "drop immedately" logic does not apply to this situation.
