Suspicious DNS Query - conficker

L4 Transporter


Is there a way for not letting conficker fill up the threat logs? Or an easy way to filter them out? I have 1000+ logs from 1 host on just a few hours and it is getting hard to see the other threats... Even in the ACC, I get a list full of conficker, nothing else. This is caused by every conficker URL being identified as a different threat ID.

Kind regards,

You can use the anti-spyware profile and add the exception for DNS queries not to be populated in the threat logs by choosing the action allow.


Associate the profile to the rule which the traffic is hitting.

So I would need to create a new rule above the one that allows it at the moment with source IP the infected clients (otherwise I would not know when other clients have it)?

Also, the conficker threat has a lot of threat ID's, so setting all DNS queries to all would make other threats not show up in the logs?


Yes, you need to create a new rule above the one that allows it currently in order to apply the anti-spyware profile .

You can use individual threat IDS and add them in the exception and set the action for them as allow as shown above in the snap shot..So in this way you will not be doing for all the threats but just for some individuals not to be populated in the threat logs.
