Third Party Signature Support
AbuseIPDB is the gold standard for abuse reporting and is used by some of the largest hosting companies worldwide. Now admins can use AbuseIPDB to check and report IP addresses for abuse. AbuseIPDB is free for up to 1000 checks per day. See here for more information.
Admins can report an IP address as abusive to AbuseIPDB from within the Warden interface. AbuseIPDB provides free blocklists so everyone can benefit from your reports.
[+] Added a reputation tab to the IP address lookup tools. Now admins can use AbuseIPDB to check and report IP addresses for abuse. AbuseIPDB is free for up to 1000 checks per day. See here for more information.
[+] Added new abuseipdb_key, securiteinfo, sanesecurity, and urlhaus options to the installer command line interface.
[+] Added signature reload functionality to the anti-virus signatures dashboard widget.
[+] Added syntax highlighting to the signature whitelist page.
[=] Updated the Anti-virus setting ConcurrentDatabaseReload default to be dynamically set based on the system memory. If the system has at least 4 GB memory it will default to yes to allow for non-blocking (multi-threaded/concurrent) database reloads.
[=] Updated the Anti-virus setting SelfCheck default from 600 to 3600 to improve server performance and optimize how often anti-virus signatures get reloaded.
[=] Updated the Anti-virus settings ExcludePUA and IncludePUA to be textareas instead of select lists to allow for more granular categories.
[=] Updated the message lookup tool to highlight Amavis entries according to the message content type and delivery.
[=] Updated the message log so that you can click on the content field to search the quarantine for messages from that sender and recipient. This makes it much easier to quickly locate quarantined messages.
[=] Updated the signature whitelist pages to use the clamd signature reload command instead of having to restart the freshclam service.
[=] Updated the geolocation settings page to not throw an error when first entering the MaxMind license key because new keys can take about 30 minutes before they are recognized.
[=] Updated the extension custom button location for admins, resellers, and customers to all display in the left navigation (in both service provider and power user views).
[=] Removed deprecated options from the anti-virus settings pages and updated the online documentation.
[-] Fixed a bug with the message log advanced search where the delivery select options were incorrect.
[-] Fixed a bug with the SMTP auth log where failed login user information was not being displayed correctly.
[-] Fixed a bug with servers using MariaDB 10.5+ with SELinux enabled.
The upgrade is available to all active license holders.
