Mute Screamer (1 post)

    Hi there,

    Am trying to configure mutescreamer to block intrusion attacks without blocking perfectly normal queries.

    So far the following are part of the exception:
    REQUEST.comment
    POST.comment
    REQUEST.permalink_structure
    POST.permalink_structure
    REQUEST.selection
    POST.selection
    REQUEST.content
    POST.content
    REQUEST.__utmz
    COOKIE.__utmz
    REQUEST.s_pers
    COOKIE.s_pers
    REQUEST.user_pass
    POST.user_pass
    REQUEST.pass1
    POST.pass1
    REQUEST.pass2
    POST.pass2
    REQUEST.password
    POST.password
    POST.description
    REQUEST.verify_sign
    REQUEST.id
    REQUEST.action_object_map

    The bottom ones hae been added, as MuteScreamer picked these up, even though they were just 'intrusions' coming from harmless activities carried out by our IP addresses on our website

    The question I have is by adding these to the exceptions, are we reducing the impact of Mute Screamer in picking up genuine attacks?

    I can see a lot of intrusions that are logged in the system, and it is not easy to know if they are genuine attacks or harmless browsing.

    Kind regards
