EnderUNIX spamGuard

Spam Blocker

Latest BETA Version: 1.9


What is spamGuard?

Nearly all of today's mail system administrators face spam as their first threat. Because of this, EnderUNIX team has written a small application to automagically monitor malicious spammer activity in your mail server logs. spamGuard is written purely to stop spammers hanging around. For the time being, the program supports qmail MTA with multilog, syslog , qSheff, sendmail, postfix and exim


spamGuard scans your MTA log files within fixed intervals, which can be defined by yourself, say 10 minutes, and if an expression " from " (for qSheff IP address is cared) is matched more than a predefined value, which is of course can be cofigured by yourself, spamGuard adds the mail address (for qSheff IP adress) to $BADMAILER file. Therefore any further mails by this user will be rejected by your MTA.

This way, you will have a chance to detect spam before it goes any further automagically.

There is also an ignore file, where you put your privileged users.
