Issue with proofpoint emerging threats

L0 Member

Hi All,

I am testing minemeld with proofpoint emerging threats service.

I am having issues with the miner because the categories are not set correctly.

I think that the miner reaches for a csv file available to proofpoint subscribers that contains ip,category,score

Category is a number between 1 and 40 that means CnC, Bot, Spammer etc etc.

An example record is,17,125

Now some of these categories are not matched correctly, the miner read category 17 but instead of the correct category (IPCheck) it is registered as Brute_Forcer category (that should be category number 23).

I'm attaching a screenshot with left image is the minemeld logs from the miner and right side is the output of the proofpoint management interface.

I'm roaming the internet but I cannot find manuals or documentation on how to solve the issue, do you have some suggestion? I think there should be a table with the mappings categoryID = category name but cannot find it.

Thank you
