--block isn't working and --mail send ton's of hits

Post by techtempus »


1.- I have this configuration:

/usr/sbin/cxs --options -wW --Wstart --allusers --www --smtp --mail root --Wmaxchild 3 --Wloglevel 0 --Wsleep 3 --filemax 0 --Wrateignore 300 --quarantine /home/quarantine/ --qoptions MV --block

It works smoothly except for the --block feature... I've been testing and after upgrading a virus test via FTP it deletes it but doesn't block my IP.

I want to block the attacker IP via CSF after a Virus or a Fingerprint is detected and deleted... is that possible?.

2.- I get about 2k emails per day like this: "cxs Scan on host1.xxx.xxx (Hits:1) (Viruses:0) (Fingerprints:0)", can I stop this?.

I want to receive an email of CXS, that for sure, but only if a Virus or a Fingerprint is found.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
