Block IP address

L1 Bithead

Hello,

Is there a way to block a specific IP address if you detect multiple threats coming from this IP? For example block an IP address after the detection of 5 threats coming from this IP within 1 minute.

I know you can block an IP  but only as an action after the detection of a specific threat.

Kind regards

Yes, you can block a source IP or combo source/dest pair for a time period using custom signatures.  Here's an example to block the source IP for threat 10353.  Make sure to select 'Combination' for signature type.

Thanks.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. What about if I don't know the ThreatIDs? Lets suppose that the attacker runs a vulnerability scanner. Is it possible for the 'Condition' option to configure something like 'any threatID'?

Kind regards

The custom signature method requires a selection of threatIDs.  For scanner detection, we can use DoS Protection to detect port scan, sweep, etc and block the source IP.  Thanks.

Not applicable

I agree with the original poster and the feature he is requesting.  I'd like to be able to block the IP outright if it hits a certain threshold of threats without pre-determining which threats the attacker will hit (no way to know).

is this feature coming? when?
