Missing entries for "Bad content detected"

Post by SelfMan » 28 Sep 2021 18:28

Hi guys,
I am running: eFa-4.0.4 - with
MailWatch Version: 1.2.16
Operating System Version: CentOS Linux 7 (Core)
Postfix Version: 3.5.9
MailScanner Version: 5.4.1
ClamAV Version: 0.103.3
SpamAssassin Version: 3.4.6
PHP Version: 7.4.23
MySQL Version: 10.2.30-MariaDB
GeoIP Database Version: GeoLite2 Country database 2021-09-21 00:56:02
With all offered updates

The issue I am having for the past 7 days is that neither the "Recent messages" or "Search and reports" list show recent "Bad Content Detected" or "Other Bad Content Detected" entries in the listing. I am getting the notification mail, that these were processed though and should be there.

All other entry types are normally visible. If I search for "contained an Unacceptable Attachment (>0 = TRUE) is greater than '0'", I get only older entries.
This is preventing me from "releasing" safe items.

Any tips what can cause this and where to look?
THANKS

Re: Missing entries for "Bad content detected"

Today, for some unknown reason, eFa started to block most of the incoming e-mails as "Other bad content detected".
All the e-mails were stored in "/var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine", so I was able to recover them and store as *.eml
These e-mails are not listed in the "Recent messages" tab, nor are they searchable in "Search and reports".

Even when I stored the blocked message as eml and then forwarded it from my external account, it got blocked.
These messages were of different types. Some of them included embedded images, others were just text.
We have restarted the server and that fixed it. I am now able to receive mail. The previous blocked emails are still not visible, yet in quarantine.

Temporary workaround while I fix the upstream code:

/etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf

Code: Select all

Ignore Denial of Service = yes
