Username/Password guessing protection?

Postby jglazer » Sat May 06, 2017 12:00 am

Is there some way to configure mailenable such that when someone tries to connect and guess usernames or passwords it blocks the IP?

Someone has been attacking my mail server and there are a ton of attempts at usernames like

a@domain.com
b@domain.com
c@domain.com
...

All from the same IP. I would think you can block the IP if this kind of activity is detected. Where, in the myriad of settings, can I set this up?

Here is an excerpt from the log file. In my opinion 192.185.81.63 should have been added to a black list:

Hi,

You need to enable the "Abuse detection and prevention" option:

We have noticed within our AUDIT logs unusually high activity as compared to in the past. One common denominator with all has been the E hello as "HELO *.*", below is a snippet from our SMTP logs. Also login attempts, for the most, have been with username in alphabetical sequence.

Obviously "*.*" shouldn't be added to the EHLO Blocking within the SMTP Properties/Security. In our experience the dictionaries attacks are coming from a broad range of IP's that rarely repeated and if repeated will be spanned over multiple days therefore blocking it by IP numbers would be fruitless. Does anybody know of another way to prevent what appears to be Dictionary Attacks other that blocking the IP number? What I'm looking for is way for ME to see the connecting host as, "*.*", and automatically dropping the session.

ME Enterprise v 9.75
"Abuse detection and prevention" option: is on

Hi,

Have you tried adding the "*.*" string to the SMTP "EHLO BLocking" option? It's located under the SMTP properties within the "Security" tab.

Just now added the "*.*" string to the SMTP "EHLO Blocking" option and it blocks all inbound traffic.

I just checked our issue register and this is a known bug that will addressed in the upcoming version. Don't have a specific date sorry.

Hello Ian,

Thank you for the quick reply and addressing it in the next version! Interestingly enough I just ran some quick calculations between yesterdays Audit and SMTP logs, 76% of the dictionary attacks were coming in with the *.* ehlo client.

Thank you again!
