Reporting Abuser, Spammer to AbuseIPDB

Post by admin »

We've just added ConfigServer Security & Firewall + AbuseIPDB to Integrating report to AbuseIPDB with CSF - Automatically Block Bad IPs.
to report thousands of IP addresses engaging spamming, hacking, vulnerability scanning, and other malicious activity in real time.

Create an executable script that reports to AbuseIPDB.
Since CSF uses Perl, the public script we display here is written in Perl.

Code: Select all

nano /path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl
Copy and paste this script from https://www.abuseipdb.com/csf:
Don't forget to replace and insert $YOUR_API_KEY from AbuseIPDB within this line.

Code: Select all

"Key" => "$YOUR_API_KEY",
and this is the full script:

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/perl
# This file was written as an executable to be used in the auto report function
# of csf and lfd. By replacing $YOUR_API_KEY below with your abuseipdb api key,
# allows you to use this code to integrate your csf system with abuseipdb.com
use strict;
use warnings;
use HTTP::Tiny;
use JSON;

# Gather the information from the commandline passed by lfd
my $ports = $ARGV[1];
my $inout = $ARGV[3];
my $message = $ARGV[5];
my $logs = $ARGV[6];
my $trigger = $ARGV[7];
my $comment = $message . "; Ports: " . $ports . "; Direction: " . $inout
    . "; Trigger: " . $trigger . "; Logs: " . $logs;
my $ua = HTTP::Tiny->new;

my $url = 'https://api.abuseipdb.com/api/v2/report';

my $data = {
    ip => $ARGV[0],
    comment => $comment,
    categories => 14
};

my %options = (
   "headers", {
       "Key" => "$YOUR_API_KEY",
       "Accept" => "application/json"
   },
);

my $response = $ua->post_form($url, $data, \%options);
my $json = JSON->new;
my $output = $json->pretty->encode($json->decode($response->{'content'}));

if ($response->{'status'} == 200){
    print "Report Succesful!\n" . $output;
} elsif ($response->{'status'} == 429) {
    print $output;
} elsif ($response->{'status'} == 422) {
    print $output;
} elsif ($response->{'status'} == 401) {
    print $output;
}
and Save it.

Set the BLOCK_REPORT variable in /etc/csf/csf.conf to the executable script file.
Since UI csf.conf not available in WHM csf plugin to be added in the BLOCK_REPORT (restricted UI item), use ROOT bash shell instead:

Code: Select all

nano /etc/csf/csf.conf
find and edit this line:

Code: Select all

BLOCK_REPORT = "/path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl"
and save it.
To make sure your change has been changed, you can view it in WHM CSF plugin configuration firewall.
WHM>> Home /Plugins /ConfigServer Security & Firewall --> Firewall configuration
and NOW...
BLOCK_REPORT = "/path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl" should be existing there.

Also... Make sure Reporting abuseipdb_block.pl working with your server:

Code: Select all

touch /path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl
chmod +x /path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl
chown root:root /path/to/abuseipdb_report.pl
and restart your CSF and LFD:

Code: Select all

csf -ra
Since I really hate this malicious brute force activity within my server:

Code: Select all

I'm really tired of watching those above malicious brute force activity...
That's why any kind of autoresponders, Including SPAM ARREST, BOXBE and ZONE ALARM disallow to used with all of our sites.
