Current Logging in Simscan

Logging in simscan is to be defined here. Currently most logging lines look like this

 simscan:[PID]:STATE:SUBJECT:SENDERIP:SENDERADDR:RCPTTOADDR

STATE

  • CLEAN: message passed
  • VIRUS: virus
  • SPAM PASS: spam-level too low to bounce
  • SPAM REJECT: spam-level high enough to bounce

SUBJECT

  • State VIRUS: Virus-Name

SENDERIP

  • IP of sender
  • With IPv6 addresses the format is broken because : are used for the address

Wishlist

  • Spam-Points on SPAM PASS or SPAM REJECT
  • attachment and regex blocking should also get logged
  • silently dropped messages also
  • for virus, the scanner should be logged (trophie/sophie/clamav)
  • More statistics
    • Processing time?
    • bytes?
  • easy processing for statistics-generating...

please comment...

Future logging proposal

 simscan[PID]:REMOTEIP:RCPTS:TTP:MODULES:ACTION:ACTIONINFO

The idea is the have the first part (up to ACTION) stay the same and make the ACTIONINFO part dependent on the chosen action.

PID 
The pid is the pid of the simscan proccess
REMOTEIP 
The remoteip is the IP of the sender. Colons ":" get replaced by "," (ipv6). If this information is not available it is set to "(null)"
RCPTS 
the recipients of the mail, seperated by commas.
TTP 
TimeToProcess, is the time is seconds that simscan needed to process the message. 1.1234 is the format.
MODULES 
lists the modules used to scan this message, separated by commas. Looks like: modulename(tts[,version)
  • modulename is the name of the scanning module
  • tts is the time this module took to scan in seconds. 1.1234 is the format.
  • version is the version of the module. only if available (--enable-received)

ACTIONS

PASS

We are in this state when the message passed through simscan without any problems

ACTIONINFO

 PASSED:pid
pid 
pid of the qmail-queue used to pass the message on
Simscan configuration

used in all configurations

PASS SPAM

This state is entered when a message is considered spam by spamassassin, but we pass it on because spam_hits is set to a higher value.

ACTIONINFO

 PASS SPAM:pid:spam-level
pid 
pid of the qmail-queue used to pass the message on
spam-level 
spamassassins spam-level
Simscan configuration

--enable-spam-passthru=y --enable-spam=y --enable-spam-hits=NUM dependent or spam_hits per-domain value
