Blacklist script

Postby msweany » Tue Mar 20, 2007 3:37 pm

I had a couple of emails that were making it through the spam filter that always had the same send from address, so I wrote this script to easily add entries to the blacklist.

Use it if you would like. * If you currently use for whitelist or other entries, you need to modify this script to save to another file*

Create a file called blacklist and make it executable

Code: Select all

touch /usr/bin/blacklist
chmod +x /usr/bin/blacklist

Next open blacklist with your favorite editor (we'll use pico here)

Code: Select all

pico /usr/bin/blacklist

Copy this code

Code: Select all

echo If at any time you would like to stop this script, press Ctrl + C
echo =============================================
echo Enter Blacklist Address use "*" for wildcard
echo =============================================
read white
# Add name to the global blacklist
echo "blacklist_from" $white >> /usr/mailcleaner/share/spamassassin/
/usr/mailcleaner/etc/init.d/mailscanner restart
echo =========================================
echo ===== Current Blacklisted Addresses =====
echo =========================================
cat /usr/mailcleaner/share/spamassassin/

and right click to paste it into file.

now press Ctrl O to save and Ctrl X to exit.

If you type blacklist at the prompt now, you will be prompted to enter an email address you would like to blacklist, it will add this address to the file (or create it if you have not already) and restart mailcleaner. It will also display your current blacklist entries.

I create the blacklist file:
And script in /usr/bin/blacklist

This work only if I put a complete address like, if try to Enter Blacklist Address use "*" for wildcard it faill to block. Like * or *

Someone have a tip or another way to configure backlist on mailcleaner?
