[ISSForum] Blocking on Server Sensors
we have installed Server Sensors on our Windows boxes, with the options
blocking and auditing enabled. Currently we are using one policy for all our
servers. It's the default network attacks policy that ISS provides. As I can
recall from the manuals blocking is by default diasbled when using default
policies. (Just checked the Manual and there are only a few signatures that
will block by default).
However, last wednesday I ran an XPU update to the Sensors and reapplied the
policy. Since then the Sensor is blocking connections that contain suspicous
exeutabled and filenames in email attachments. That was not what it was
supposed to do, right? I checked the policy and it does say blocking, but as
far as the manuals go, it should not have done this. The response rules are
default, nobody has changed them just yet.
What bothers me now, is the blocking. All the literature says it should not,
so why does it, even though I use strict basic settings at this moment? Got
me confused, but it also aids me in my quest to convince management that I
need more time for IDS/IPS then I currently have. Especially when we start
using Proventia's inline...
Anyway, anyone any idea?
